Dr. Stout has been a member of the department since 1987. Presently he is teaching courses in Statistics, History of Psychology and Learning & Memory. Given his background in the history and philosophy of science, his research interests focus on the history of psychology (19th Century British Psychology, Ancient Greek Philosophy/Psychology) and knowledge generating practices (history of statistics and research design). These interests compliment and enrich the perspective from which he teaches his courses. Dr. Stout has been a recipient of the Chancellor’s Teaching Award (2003).
Professor Stout’s research in philosophy deals primarily with topics in the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of science and ancient thought. His published work lies in the area of psychology. But he has made regular presentations to the Philosophy Department – most recently at a conference on Plato’s Meno sponsored by the Bishop’s Plato Group. His current projects include a book length study of philosopher/psychologist James Ward and a set of short stories.
