John Capps received his Ph.D from Northwestern University in 1997. The focus of his research is within epistemology and the philosophy of science, where he has been influenced by the work of classical American pragmatists. Recent publications have examined the justification of philosophical naturalism, the limits of scientific pluralism, and the context sensitivity of epistemic standards.
