Student at the philosophy department of the ENS, I am following this year the Master 2 of the Philmaster. I am mainly interested in the philosophy of mind and of language. My memoir, directed by M. Paul Égré, studies the knowledge argument (or problem of the existence of qualias) and the different natures of knowledge, using as a frame the distinction between propositional knowledge and practical knowledge (Ryle, David Lewis) and the notions of knowledge by description and knowledge by acquaintance introduced by Russel.
