History of analytic philosophy and the philosophy of logic, mathematics, and science.
Professor Reck’s main research interests lie in the history of analytic philosophy and the philosophy of logic, mathematics, and science. Other interests include twentieth-century philosophy more generally, the philosophy of language, and aesthetics. He is the editor, or co-editor, of From Frege to Wittgenstein: Perspectives on Early Analytic Philosophy, Gottlob Frege: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, Vols. I–IV (with M. Beaney), and The Historical Turn in Analytical Philosophy, as well as the co-translator of Frege’s Lectures on Logic: Carnap’s Student Notes, 1910–1914 (with S. Awodey). In addition, he has published a number of articles on Frege, Wittgenstein, Carnap, the history and philosophy of logic, and the history and philosophy of mathematics. During recent years he has taught undergraduate classes in logic, the philosophy of mathematics, twentieth-century analytic philosophy, and on the infinite, and graduate seminars on Frege, early and later Wittgenstein, rule following, the notion of sense, and scientific explanation.
