Biography: I did much of my growing up in Adelaide, South Australia, and got interested in Philosophy as a way to escape Law School. At the University of Adelaide I focused on the study of Logic – in particular Inconsistent Logic. I also spent as much time as I could climbing, kayaking and playing Aussie Rules! Eventually graduate school called and I spent way too many fascinating years in Bloomington, Indiana, working on my Ph.D. in philosophy and taking as many classes on the history and sociology of science as I could. However even grad school must come to an end, and I was beyond fortunate to join the Philosophy Department at BSU.
