Daniel Quattrone Awarded PhD
On May 18, 2011, Daniel Quattrone successfully defended his dissertation, A Two-Dimensional Semantics for Epistemic Modals, to complete the requirements for a PhD in Philosophy.
Steven Kuhn chaired Dan's dissertation committee, with Wayne Davis and Linda Wetzel serving as committee members. Quattrone’s dissertation aimed to provide “…a new account of modality capable of representing…epistemically possible metaphysical impossibilities [EPMIs]” and to explain the existence of EPMIs while retaining the versatility and explanatory power of the standard accounts.
Quattrone received his BA in Philosophy from Stetson University in 2003 and entered the program in Philosophy in 2004. His areas of specialization include Philosophy of Language, and his areas of competence include Epistemology, Philosophical Logic, and Philosophy of the Mind.
The Department wishes to congratulate Dan on his success!
