Emma Borg

  • Director of the Centre for Cognition Research
  • I work part-time, but in the past I have taught mainly Reason and Argument at part 1, Philosophy of Mind at part 2, and Philosophy of Language at part 3.

Areas of interest

  • My interests lie mainly in Philosophy of Language (particularly the semantics/pragmatics divide) and Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science (particularly issues of concepts and social cognition). I am happy to supervise PhD students in any of these areas.
