Current Book Project:

The Epistemic Value of Accurate Representation.

When I was in high school, my mother co-authored a college textbook in biology. During this process, she received numerous proofs of the textbook chapters in the mail. The proofs had various sentences, but also pictures, charts, images, models, diagrams, etc. She spent time late at night going line-by-line correcting the sentences. But she also corrected, modified, and improved upon the other representations as well. I believe my mother was right to correct not just the sentences in her textbook but the other representations as well. There is something valuable and important in accurately representing the world, whether it is in the form of a sentence or something else. This book project is an attempt to more carefully and rigorously develop that idea.
