Dr Olley Pearson, BA (Hons), MLitt, PhD, AHEA
My research focuses on issues in metaphysics, broadly construed to include topics such as the metaphysics of normativity and science. I am interested in how our metaphysical and normative views influence one another. I worked as a Research Fellow on the Durham Emergence Project before becoming a Teaching Fellow.
