Brie Gertler

I am Commonwealth Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Virginia. I am also an editor of the journal Noûs. I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and free will & moral responsibility.

My interests center in the philosophy of mind, especially self-knowledge, consciousness, mental content, and the self.  Most recently, I’ve been working on three topics: (1) self-knowledge, (2) the case for dualism, and (3) the “mind” boundary.  Links to my recent work in each of these areas are below.

My publications (with abstracts & links).                   My CV.
