Dr Joshua Habgood-Coote


I am a philosopher working mainly in epistemology and the philosophy of language.

I am a research fellow on the GROUNDS project at the school of Philosophy, Religion, and History of Science at the University of Leeds. Before that, I was a Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Bristol.

My current research project centres around the role of collective inquiry in generating knowledge. I’m interested in what group inquiry is, what kind of knowledge it produces, and collective practical knowledge. As part of my interest in collective knowledge production I have thought about collective inquiry in science and mathematics, and the ways that social media platforms might be designed to support productive collective inquiry. These threads have led me to think about about how to establish fairer and more transparent authorship practices for collaborative research, and why we really ought to stop talking about fake news.
