Artūrs Logins

A picture from a few years ago

I am a Swiss National Science Foundation Ambizione Fellow at the University of Zürich. I am a philosopher, and I have focused my research on three main questions: What are normative reasons in general? How do we think about graded notions in epistemology? What are the consequences within and outside epistemology of taking knowledge as fundamental and explanatorily prime? These general research questions correspond to my three main research programs. See my research statement for more on these.

I am also a member of ZEGRA (Zurich Epistemology Group on Rationality).

[The above transcription of my name is in Latvian. I prefer Latvian transcription of my name for official and semi-official venues, e.g., publications. Yet, in everyday contexts, I am happy to switch to English/French transcription ‘Arturs’].
