Günther Eder

I am a lecturer in philosophy at the Department of Philosophy at the University of Vienna.

My main areas of research are in philosophical logic and the history and philosophy of logic and mathematics. Currently, I am particularly interested in the Frege-Hilbert controversy, including its philosophical and historical background. Working on Frege and Hilbert also sparked a systematic interest in theories of truth and the concepts of logical truth and consequence. At the moment I am also interested in the semantics of counterfactuals and specific problems in formal epistemology (in particular, the problem of logical omniscience).

Apart from that I have a lively interest in metaphysics, philosophy of language, as well as traditional epistemology and philosophy of science.
