Dr Jade Fletcher's Research

Dr. Fletcher works on both highly abstract topics in theoretical philosophy, as well as more applied topics in social and feminist philosophy. Her doctoral research investigated the role of truth in the method of metaphysics, looking at how the demands placed on the concept of truth in theories of meaning for natural language can constrain or limit metaphysical inquiry. Her current research is concerned with how these metametaphysical issues play out in social metaphysics. She is working on a range of theoretical and normatively salient problems around characterising the nature of social reality under conditions of ideological distortion.
