Readers may recall University of Colorado atheist philosophy prof Bradley Monton, who has written sympathetically about ID. He’s resigned recently (“I’ve been unhappy with the administration’s recent treatment of me and others in the philosophy department”) amid speculation.
A friend points out, however, that his Web page tells us,
In philosophy of time, I confess a sympathy for presentism, the doctrine that only presently existing things exist, and I’m currently at work on a book, The Flow of Time, defending that doctrine (and I have a lot to say in my book about how to define the doctrine more precisely than I just did).
\In philosophy of religion, I have two new papers forthcoming, a short one (“Mixed Strategies Can’t Evade Pascal’s Wager”) and a long one (“Against Multiverse Theodicies”). Also, I wrote a book, Seeking God in Science: An Atheist Defends Intelligent Design. Click on the “ID” link above for more information.
In philosophy of physics, a recent research project (“Prolegomena to Any Future Physics-Based Metaphysics”) critiques some metaphysicans who appeal to physics to attempt to establish metaphysical conclusions.
In probabilistic epistemology, I’m interested in in developing a probability theory which can handle indexical propositions (self-locating beliefs), an area where Bayesian epistemology breaks down. I also am interested in various issues involving reasoning with infinite possibility spaces.
So he is still in the game.
Here’s some information about his book, Seeking God in Science, and here is Salvo’s interview with him.
