My name is Nicholas Ray. I live in Kitchener-Waterloo, Canada. I teach at the University of Waterloo (Philosophy, Cognitive Science, Knowledge Integration) and Wilfrid Laurier University (Philosophy, History and Philosophy of Science, and Communication Studies). Broadly speaking, my philosophical interests are about scientific knowledge — what it is, how it is produced, and how it gets promulgated. This is central to all of my teaching. My research is slightly more focussed on our formal knowledge (in mathematics and mathematical physics), and how such knowledge is possible. This sounds old-fashioned, and in a sense it is — though I utilise some recent developments in philosophical logic to address these issues in fresh ways.
