PhD student at the École Normale Supérieure and at the Institut Jean Nicod, financed by PSL Research University.

Advisor: Uriah Kriegel.

Research subject: Introspection and self-knowledge.

 

RESEARCH PROJECT

My research project lies between philosophy of mind and epistemology. It explores the nature and the epistemic significance of introspection.

I defend the idea that two kinds of introspective state should be distinguished, one conceptual and propositional (which I call fact-introspection), the other nonconceptual and non-propositional (which I call thing-introspection). I believe this distinction helps think more clearly about both the nature and the epistemic features of introspection. I argue that thing-introspection is the most fundamental kind of introspective state and that it plays a key role in self-knowledge.
