Dr. Moussa Mohammadian

Congratulations to Moussa Mohammadian for being awarded a fellowship from the Center for Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh to spend the Spring term 2024 as a Visiting Fellow in the Center. 

This fellowship is the most prestigious one in the field of Philosophy of Science. Dr. Mohammadian's project focuses on the interactions between early logical empiricism and C.S. Peirce's philosophy, especially his philosophy of science. His aim is twofold: 1) study why Peirce's philosophy of science got marginalized in the course of the development of the 20th-century philosophy of science, especially in the US, despite the warm reception that it received from early advocates and sympathizers of logical empiricism; 2) to bring to the foreground some of Peirce's valuable insights, missed from the mainstream philosophy of science due to this marginalization.
