Andrei recently defended his dissertation prospectus, and is eager to start writing his dissertation! Over the coming summer, Andrei will give a talk at the Joint Session of the Aristotelian and Mind Societies (Cardiff, in July), and at two congresses, devoted to the History and Philosophy of Science (HOPOS, Minneapolis, in June) and at the Society for the Study of the History of Analytic Philosophy (SSHAP, Denver, in June). Participation in these events is likely to help Andrei further articulate the details of the project he has begun working on.
