FoNTI-Project

My project explores the conditions of interdisciplinary research into (normative) mind-phenomena. Looking at work done on social cognition in individuals on the autism spectrum as a case of such an interdisciplinary research effort, I am focusing especially on the potential that the phenomenological concept may hold for a science of cognition.

Supervisors: Hans Bernhard Schmid, Herwig Grimm, Matthew Ratcliffe
