Rasmus Jaksland


Much of my research is driven by questions that arise at the intersection between science and philosophy. This includes metaphysical and epistemological issues in quantum physics, especially as they relate the (alleged) emergence of space in quantum gravity research and its association with quantum entanglement, but also methodological work on naturalism and more particularly, how science can and should inform metaphysics and theorizing more generally. Aside from these, I have an interest in social epistemology focusing on testimony, disagreement, and belief aggregation.
