Kirsten Walsh is a lecturer in Philosophy. She is interested in Isaac Newton’s methodology in both historical and philosophical contexts. She asks, how ought we understand his scientific achievements and what are the upshots for theoretical accounts of science? Her approach incorporates the tools and ideas of contemporary philosophy of science, balanced with a sensitivity to historical context. This gives her research a distinctive reach into both contemporary issues in the philosophy of science and to the history of ideas. She has been carrying out her research as part of a team studying the emergence of experimental philosophy in the early modern period.
