Daniel Friedman

I am a 4th year PhD student in Philosophy at Stanford University. I am writing a dissertation under the co-supervision of Michael Bratman and Krista Lawlor. Before Stanford, I did an M.A. at Brandeis and prior to that a B.A./M.A. at Johns Hopkins. I was born in Budapest and grew up in and around NYC. You can find my writing and CV at dcfriedman.weebly.com
​My main philosophical work is in epistemology, the philosophies of action and science, and social philosophy with newer research and teaching interests in political philosophy, tech ethics, and the philosophy of law. ​
Lately, I've been thinking about the relationship between epistemic norms and norms of good reasoning on the one hand and ties of sociality on the other. I think this relationship is especially interesting when we focus on collective inquiry and democratic deliberation.
When not doing philosophy, I enjoy exploring the Bay Area with my wife, meeting dogs, reading Hungarian poetry, drinking Scotch, and watching Chelsea F.C. as much as I can.
