Dr Walter Veit
Areas of interestMy interests are broad, but I work primarily in and at the intersections of (i) the Philosophy of Cognitive and Biological Sciences, (ii) the Philosophy of Mind, and (iii) Applied Ethics. I also work in the philosophy of medicine, the philosophy of social sciences, and PPE (Philosophy, Politics, and Economics).
As a new lecturer at Reading, I look forward to supervising doctoral research students in any of my areas of interest.
I teach the following modules at undergraduate level:
Meaning and the Mind: This module focuses on some core topics in philosophy of mind and philosophy of language.
Ignorance, Doubt, and Relativism: This module focuses on core issues in epistemology, specifically in the theory of knowledge.
