Nick and his beard

My name is Nicholas Ray. I am a philosopher who lives in Guelph, Canada. I teach at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University, mostly in Philosophy, but also in the History and Philosophy of Science and Communication Studies programmes. I do a lot of intellectual history as regards the co-development of scientific and philosophical ideas. I focus on philosophical questions about our scientific and mathematical knowledge, and how such knowledge is possible. This sounds old-fashioned, and in a sense it is, though I utilize some recent developments in philosophical logic to address these issues.

Please see my “About” section for more details about me, and my “Research” section about my work.
