In Spring 2019 I'll be teaching an undergraduate philosophy of language course, and a graduate seminar jointly with Michael Tye entitled "Perception and the evolution of consciousness". I will be primarily responsible for the part on perception, which will be given in the second part of the semester, and Michael is responsible for the part on the evolution of consciousness.

We look forward to active participation by graduate students and rewarding feedback from them.
