Description of the Group

The Reasoning, Rationality and Science Group is coordinated by Dunja Šešelja and Christian Straßer. Dunja is a philosopher of science with special interests in the dynamics and rationality of scientific inquiry, from pursuit-worthiness to information sharing, the division of scientific labor and communicating science (wisely) to the public. Christian is a logician, specialized in formal models of defeasible reasoning (nonmonotonic logic, formal argumentation). They have been collaborating since many years and finally founded this group with the support of the Ruhr University Bochum to join forces and gather enthusiastic researchers around them to investigate the many fascinating questions surrounding reasoning, rationality and science.
