Armendt is interested in understanding social phenomena – patterns of behavior, norms, networks, communication systems – as products and conditions of complex interactions among individuals. How well do complex models of individual interactions explain such social phenomena, if and when they do? More generally, his research interests include decision theory, practical reasoning, epistemology, and the philosophy of science.
