Professor of Philosophy & Cognitive Science at Williams College
Chair, Department of Philosophy

My general interests are in the philosophy of cognitive science, the nature of knowledge, and the mind/body problem. I specialize in naturalized epistemology, the history of skepticism, philosophy of mind, embodied cognition, animal cognition, artificial neural networks, and cognitive development. Recently I have written on ethics and artificial intelligence, and I am currently working on projects in cognitive science and sculpture.
