He is mainly working on topics in the field of phenomenology, philosophy of mind, and cognitive science and has written on the nature of selfhood, self-consciousness, intersubjectivity, social cognition, temporality, sociality, shame, empathy and collective intentionality. In this week's seminar Dan discusses empathy, alterity and morality.
The seminar will be followed by informal drinks at Top Bar and a meal.
