Dr Will McNeill

mcneillVisiting Research Fellow







I was awarded my PhD from UCL in 2009. Since then I have taught at the University of York and Cardiff University and King’s College London.

Research interests
  • Philosophy of Perception
  • Epistemology
  • Philosophy of Psychology & Cognitive Science
  • Problems of Other Minds
  • Artificial Intelligence

I currently research the nature and epistemology of our ability to recognize each others’ mental features. I have been exploring the view that our contact with others’ mental features is sometimes perceptual.

More generally I am interested in cognitive and epistemological explanations of our recognitional capacities, as well the connections between our own capacities and those of artificial recognition engines.
