Hi, I’m Taylor A. Dunn

I am currently a philosophy graduate student at the University of California, Irvine (Department of Philosophy). I’m advised by Annalisa Coliva. My research interests include topics in epistemology, the philosophy of logic, philosophy of language, and metaphysics.

In particular, I am working on an account of the normativity of logic which has it that certain basic logical rules are constitutive norms of thought, and I explore its consequences for things like the epistemology of logic and logical pluralism. I am also interested in reductio arguments, the normativity of consistency and coherence, epistemic akrasia, the Catuskoti, the epistemology of faith, and demonstrative expressions.

Here is my CV.

When I find time, I also make music.

I’m currently working on papers on:
– logical aliens
– logical constitutivism
– logical abductivism
– logical pluralism
– hyperlinks and demonstratives
– Kierkegaard and Quasi-Fideism
