PhD Programme / Institute for Logic, Language and Computation

'Most of the time, we do not think about what we do. We just respond in an adequate way to what our environment has to offer. I am interested in how brain, body and world contribute jointly to such episodes of everyday skillful behavior, but also in how unreflective and more reflective actions mesh together. I use phenomenology, theoretical neuroscience and embodied cognitive science to try to better understand these questions.'
Jelle BruinebergPhD candidate in Philosophy since February 2014.
