Jorge Alberto Manero Orozco

I am Mexican philosopher currently employed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences. I am part of the project "Formal Epistemology – The Future Synthesis" conducted by professor Ladislav Kvasz. My main work is on Philosophy of Physics, Metaphysics of Science, and Philosophy of Science. In particular, I am interested in bringing into light the implicit methodological, epistemological, and metaphysical presuppositions involved in the actual practice of the physical sciences, and in supporting physics-based philosophical positions with special emphasis on structural realist approaches. I have other interests in philosophy of the social sciences, economics, and visual arts (the latter both practically and philosophically).

About Project

The aim of the project is to develop a formalization of epistemology analogous to Frege’s formalization of logic. The core of the project centres upon five theses setting out the path to a truly formal epistemology. These theses are based on the deeply-held belief that the current trend in the formalization of epistemology is insufficiently radical.
