I am a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Calgary, working in logic, history of analytic philosophy, and the philosophy of mathematics. In logic, my main interests are non-classical logics and proof theory. My historical interests lie mainly in the development of formal logic and historical figures associated with this development such as Hilbert, Gödel, and Carnap. In the philosophy of mathematics I have mainly worked on Hilbert’s program and the philosophical relevance of proof theory. I’m also interested, and actively working on, Open Educational Resources.

I focus on plant morphology and biological theory in the 19th and 20th centuries. Areas of focus include theories of plant morphology, the application of mathematics to morphology, and metaphysical contexts of morphology. Specific individuals covered include Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Agnes Arber, D’Arcy Thompson, George Adams, and Olive Whicher.

My name is Carlo Ierna and I’m currently working as a lecturer in history of philosophy at the Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I’ve previously been part-time, fixed-term lecturer at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (feb-mar and sep-oct 2017 and feb-mar 2018), Utrecht University (Nov 2018-Jan 2019), Leiden University (Sep 2018-Feb 2019), and the University of Groningen (2016-2018). During 2017 I was part of the research team working on the project “From Logical Objectivism to Reism: Bolzano and the School of Brentano”, together with Robin Rollinger and Hynek Janousek, and member of the Institute of Philosophy at the Czech Academy of the Sciences. From January to May 2014 I was a Visiting Fellow in Philosophy at Harvard and in the summer of 2015 at the Brentano Archives in Graz. From 2012 to 2016 I was a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University with an NWO VENI research project on the renewal of the ideal of “Philosophy as Science” in the School of Brentano. In September 2016 I obtained my university teaching qualification. From 2009 to 2012 I worked on a postdoctoral project at the KULeuven on the philosophy of mathematics and logic in the School of Brentano.
Dr Sandra Leonie Field is a political philosopher working at Yale-NUS College, Singapore. Her research investigates conceptions of political power and their implications for democratic theory. She approaches these themes through engagement with texts in the history of philosophy, especially Hobbes and Spinoza. More broadly, she teaches and is interested in political thought, theory, and philosophy, both historical and contemporary; moral philosophy, both Western and non-Western; and social theory.
