Willingness to take PhD students
Professor Siegel's research has mainly focused on perception, belief, and epistemic normativity. She has investigated the nature of perception, its rational (and irrational) roles, its relation to consciousness and unconsciousness, its metaphysical and epistemological similarities and differences with belief, and the constraints it puts on linguistic demonstrative expressions such as "this", "that", "this F" and "that F". She has also written on perceptual constancies, which properties are represented in perception, the role of introspection in investigating consciousness, and the grounds of perceptual intentionality.
Professor Siegel will co-supervise PhD students working on perception, philosophy of mind, and epistemology together with the staff from Birmingham.
