My research is centred on the ideas of scientific pluralism and epistemic democracy. Two components can be distinguished. The first component elaborates our understanding of scientific pluralism in relation with the more traditional topics in philosophy of science (e.g., the theory of scientific explanation, causality, social ontology, scientific objectivity and values in science). The second component deals with the institutional context within which scientific pluralism and science as public knowledge (should) operate – an exercise in social epistemology. This philosophical work is greatly informed by (social) scientific practice, in particular the practice of historians, sociologists, economists and researchers working in international relations theory.
