Dr Will McNeill
Visiting 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.
- Philosophy of Perception
- 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.
