“What’s on your mind?” Webinar for prospective students at the Department of Philosophy at CEU

Friday, November 18, 2022, 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

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.

Current Interests
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.

Thesis Topic
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.

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.
