We are Peter Anstey, Juan Manuel Gomez, Alberto Vanzo and Kirsten Walsh. We are four students of early modern philosophy based at the Department of Philosophy of the University of Otago in New Zealand. This is the blog of our research project which is entitled “Experimental Philosophy and the Origins of Empiricism”. You can read a description of our project here.

In this blog, we would like to share and discuss our ideas and research with you. We’ll also let you know about forthcoming events and recent publications which are relevant to our research. Whether you are a philosopher, an intellectual historian, a historian of philosophy or science, or you just have an interest for figures such as Boyle, Locke, Newton or Kant, we hope you’ll find these pages interesting.

We would love to hear from you if you have any feedback, comment, or suggestion. Feel free to leave a comment on these pages or to drop us an email. Also, you can subscribe to the mailing list or to our RSS feed or follow us on Twitter if you’d like us to let you know when we publish new posts.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy browsing!
