Research interests

Adam Rieger is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy. He read Mathematics as an undergraduate at Cambridge, after which he completed an MSc in Logic and Scientific Method at the London School of Economics, and a DPhil in Philosophy at Oxford, under the supervision of Angus Macintyre and Michael Dummett.

He has research interests in philosophy of mathematics, particularly the foundations of set theory, set theoretic paradoxes and non-wellfounded sets; the semantic paradoxes; conditionals, on which he has written a series of papers defending a neo-Gricean account; formal epistemology; and social choice theory, particularly non-ranked voting methods such as range voting, approval voting and majority judgment.


Supervision

Adam has supervised recent and current students working on dialetheism and plural logic.

He is happy to supervise students in:

  • Philosophy of mathematics
  • Logic
  • Formal epistemology
  • Social choice theory
