Dr. Streeter is a Cognitive Scientist who applies a broad-ranging, empirical approach to the pursuit of the (better) question (i.e., ask a better question, get a better answer), an approach that incorporates a range of teaching and research interests, all of which are guided by the epistemological-based question: How do we know that what we know is good, warranted, true knowledge?
