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, the metaphysics of perceptual experience, and issues in general jurisprudence.

Selected publications
  • Alford-Duguid, D. (forthcoming) ‘Thought about Properties: Why the Perceptual Case is Basic’. Philosophical Quarterly.
  • Alford-Duguid, D. & Arsenault, M. (2017) ‘On the Explanatory Power of Hallucination’. Synthese 194: 1765-1785.

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

At King's his teaching area is the philosophy of neuroscience.
