Alan Richardson (Philosophy) works on the relations of history of philosophy and history of science in the era since Kant. He is currently writing a book that uses resources from STS to illuminate the history of the “scientific philosophy” of logical positivism and its lingering effects on the research organization of academic philosophy to the present day.
