Isaac Wilhelm


I am a Ph.D. candidate in the philosophy department at Rutgers University. While pursuing my doctorate in philosophy, I earned an M.S. from the Rutgers mathematics department.

My research interests include metaphysics, philosophy of science, philosophy of physics, epistemology (traditional and formal), feminist philosophy, logic, philosophy of biology, and philosophy of mathematics. My dissertation is on explanation: I explore the worldly relations which back explanations, typicality explanations, and explanatory comparisons in mathematics.

In addition to philosophy, I like watching and making movies, reading and writing poems, and hiking.
