About me

       I am currently a post-doc and research assistant to Prof. Wolfgang Barz. I received my PhD from Goethe University in 2016. While I was a graduate student, I was a visiting student at the University of Southern California and Rutgers University. Fore more information, please see my CV. If I am not doing philosophy, I love spending time on my mountain bike, reading novels, and creating music. Please do not confuse me with a colleague at Bern who has the same first and last name as I do, or other persons at Goethe University with the last name “Müller”. Since 2017, to avoid confusion, I publish under the Americanized version of my name, “Andy Mueller”.

Research Interests

         I mainly work in epistemology and what one might call theories of reasons and rationality, (both epistemic and practical, and how they are related). My main interest in epistemology are pragmatic encroachment, epistemic norms for belief, practical reasoning and other mental states, internalist vs. externalist conceptions of epistemic justification, evidence and higher-order evidence, and knowledge-first epistemology. I continue to have interests in metaethics, moral epistemology, and the history of analytic philosophy.
