Jonas Raab

Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy


Hi, this is the website of Jonas Raab. I'm currently a IRC Postdoctoral Fellow in philosophy at Trinity College Dublin (until August 2024).

Prior to my move to Dublin, I've finished a PhD in philosophy at the University of Manchester (2017-2021), after receiving a Master of Arts in Logic and Philosophy of Science from the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP) (2015-2017) and a Magister Artium in Philosophy, Mathematics, and Statistics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (2007-2014). 

I work on several topics within mainly theoretical philosophy. Currently, my main topics fall within metametaphysics, philosophy of science, philosophy of logic, and the history of analytic philosophy. In particular, I'm working on ontological commitment, explication, and modelling. I have also interests in philosophical methods (e.g., progess in philosophy, intuitions), ancient philosophy (in particular Aristotle and late Plato), formal philosophy of science (e.g., Dutch books, problem of old evidence), and logic (e.g., Quantified Argument Calculus).
