A.A. Verhaegh PhD

Assistant Professor 

Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences
Department of Philosophy


Sander Verhaegh is an Assistant Professor Philosophy of Science. His research focuses on the history of analytic philosophy, the history of science, the philosophy of logic, and the philosophy of psychology. In 2016, he received a Veni grant from The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for a project (2017-2020) about the distinct though interconnected variants of behaviorism that played an important role in mid-twentieth century psychology, philosophy, and linguistics.

Earlier in 2016, he received a Kristeller-Popkin Fellowship from the Journal of the History of Philosophy as well as a Rodney G. Dennis Fellowship from Houghton Library, Harvard University, to complete his book on the development of Quine's naturalism. He used these grants to visit Harvard University's Department of Philosophy in the fall semester of 2016 and the spring semester of 2018. The book, Working from Within: The Nature and Development of Quine's Naturalism, is now available at Oxford University Press.
