My academic writings

All of my published articles and other writings are available here, with the exception of my book, The Emergent Multiverse. Papers are available grouped under subject headings, with abstracts and links; there is also a list in chronological order below, which links to the more detailed descriptions.

In most cases, the best-quality version of the paper will be the publisher's version, but usually you (or your institution) will need a subscription to the relevant online journal. In all cases I also give a link to a preprint version - usually on arxiv.org or on the Pittsburgh Philosophy of Science archive - but the journal version is usually better quality.

Any paper on this website may be quoted or cited without asking my permission, whether or not it has been officially published yet. (If someone doesn't want their work to be publicly disussed, they shouldn't post it on the Internet.) If you are citing a paper that's been published, please if possible refer to the final, journal version rather than to a preprint.

The date I list for a paper is the date at which it first became widely accessible. In some cases, this is up to several years before the "official" publication date.
