PhD Programme / Institute for Logic, Language and Computation

'My main area of interest is metaphysics; in this discipline, I believe, strictness and a sense of detail should be valued above wide-ranging claims. Language is important because it is our clearest window on the world and the way we experience it. But it does not constitute them.'
Elbert BooijPhD candidate since April 2014.
