About Me / CV

I am primarily an historian of science and an historian of philosophy. My work focuses on complex systems of understanding (such as philosophical, scientific, and religious systems) and their structural dynamics. I am interested in the ways in which human beings understand their world and the different historical manifestations of such understanding. I teach World History, European History, the theory and methods of historical research, and the History of Science.
