Katherine A. Brading

Professor of Philosophy


I work primarily in philosophy of science. I am interested in theoretical physics read as a contribution to philosophy, and am currently working on a book project that re-tells history of philosophy from the late sixteenth century to the present day, with history of physics as an integral part of the story.
