Departmental Colloquium: Richard Moore (University of Warwick)

CEU Vienna
Wednesday, April 19, 2023, 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Richard Moore is an Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. His research group investigates two related questions about the nature and origins of human cognition: (1) Why are humans the only species to invent and acquire natural languages? (2) How does natural language change human social cognition?

He is also interested in more general questions connected to the Philosophy of Mind, Language and Psychology, as these are discussed in the analytic (e.g., Wittgenstein, Davidson, Dennett, Millikan) tradition in Philosophy; in questions about the mental lives of animals; and in philosophical and empirical issues connected to human nature and human evolution.
