Dissertation and doctoral studies

I have now finally started planning my doctoral studies and the dissertation. The deadline for applications at the University of Helsinki this year is October the 20th. Better late than never I think. However, I have managed to come up with an initial plan. In my doctoral dissertation I will be studying abductive reasoning and materiality in archaeology. My approach is heavily based on the philosophy of Charles Peirce and his concept of abduction. I will apply the concept of abduction on such themes as visuality, reconstruction, and classification i.e. typology. In addition, I will outline a new scientific archaeology according to the principles of pragmaticism. If I get accepted, my studies will begin in January.
