Javier Belastegui

I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and a Master's degree in Philosophy, Science and Values at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).

I am currently undertaking my PhD Studies within the Philosophy, Science and Values PhD Program (University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU) with a grant provided by the Basque Government. During 2019 I made a 3-month stay at the Munich Center for Mathematical Philosophy (MCMP).
My PhD research revolves around the notion of similarity and the problem of natural kinds. I am particularly interested in formal models of similarity. My research interests also include General Philosophy of Science (scientific representation, measurement theory).
