Dr Dominic Alford-Duguid received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Toronto in 2016, having worked under Imogen Dickie. He also did his undergraduate work at the University of Toronto, graduating with an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy, English, and Mathematics.

Research interests
  • Philosophy of Mind
  • Philosophy of Language
  • Epistemology
  • Metaphysics

Much of my research concerns the relationship between our capacities to perceive the world and to think about what we perceive. My dissertation was on perception-based thought about observable properties (e.g. shapes, sizes, colours). A new project explores just how much of our thought about the world depends upon our capacity for perception-based thought about properties.

I also write about the epistemology of perception, the nature of reference, and the metaphysics of perceptual experience.

Selected publications
  • Alford-Duguid, D. and Arsenault, M. (forthcoming) ‘On the Explanatory Power of Hallucination’. Synthese

At the University of Toronto, Dr Alford-Duguid taught undergraduate courses in Philosophy of Perception, Philosophy of Law, and Metaphysics & Epistemology.

He will be teaching some modules in Philosophy of Science.
