In conjunction with the APA, we are pleased to announce that Professor David Christensen of Brown University will give the 2017–2018 Sanders Lecture at the 2018 Eastern Division meeting in Savannah, GA.
Christensen received his Ph.D. from UCLA in 1987 and taught for 20 years at the University of Vermont before coming to Brown University in 2007. His main research interests are in epistemology, formal and informal. His book, Putting Logic in its Place, investigates the role of logic in constraining rational beliefs and degrees of confidence. He has also written several papers on this topic and others. Christensen is currently working on questions about how our theory of rational belief should in general accommodate one’s doubts about one’s own cognitive reliability.
