Dr Simon Hewitt

Leverhulme Fellow

Summary: Logic; Philosophy of Mathematics; Philosophy of Religion

Simon's main project is an investigation of the (historically important) view that nothing whatsoever follows from a contradiction. He has been awarded a Leverhulme Early Career fellowship to undertake work on this from 2018 onwards.

Apart from this he has wide-ranging interests in philosophy: other than the philosophy of logic and mathematics, he is currently doing work in the philosophy of religion.

His personal website is here.
