David Pearce, born in London, UK, in 1952. Ph.D. from the University of Sussex, Brighton. Associate Professor of Philosophy at the Freie Universität, Berlin.
Fellow (1 September 1982 – 31 August 1983)
My programme of research was divided into three separate projects in the philosophy of science:
a book Inter-theory Relations (D. Reidel), on the logic of relations between scientific theories;
a joint research programme with V. Rantala, (Helsinki) to develop and apply a new approach to the logical structure of theories;
a joint study with M. Tucci, (Rome) of the structure and comparison of theories of mathematical economics.
