Philip Thonemann

Philip Thonemann is a physics teacher at Mill Hill School, in North London, and a part-time philosopher of science. His academic background includes Physics and Philosophy at Oxford, and postgraduate work at University College, London. He is currently working, very slowly, to raise the profile of Modest Scientific Realism, an unexciting but plausible view which has lurked in the literature for many years. As a longstanding member of the Wittgenstein reading group he is producing expository and critical notes on the Philosophical Investigations. Most importantly, he is the convenor of the famous Centre Tea, which is currently at 4:00 every Wednesday.
