In this hour-long webinar, you can meet members of the Department of Philosophy and ask questions about the program and the application process.
In the first part of the webinar, faculty and students will debate the question of how we know our own mental states. In the second part, we will introduce the department and study program, and offer a chance for potential applicants to ask questions.
The webinar will feature:
Katalin Farkas, Head of Department
Her areas of research include philosophy of mind and epistemology. She has defended the view that privileged accessibility is the mark of the mental.
Hanoch Ben-Yami, faculty
His recent work is on logic and language; on various issues in the philosophy of mind; on questions of space and time, especially in relation to Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics; on Descartes; and on Wittgenstein.
Stephania Donayre Pimentel, MA student
My current interests lie in the intersection between epistemology and the philosophy of mind, as well as in the philosophy of the various scientific disciplines within the overarching program of cognitive science. These interests are ultimately motivated by their normative implications on how we shall approach one's own and other's minds.
My ongoing work investigates the myriad of methods available to bring unconscious states (e.g., beliefs, desires) to awareness for the purpose of acquiring self-knowledge.
Ali Kerem Eroglu, PhD student
Kerem specializes in the philosophy of mind and perception with broader interests in phenomenology and epistemology. His thesis explores the temporal character of perceptual experience, where he argues that conscious perceptual experience is temporally viewpointed.
