Blakely L. Phillips                  Philosophy

My areas of specialization are epistemology (particularly self-knowledge) & philosophy of language (particularly indexicality). My current research focuses on practical self-knowledge: how to place the ways we in fact come to know about ourselves in the context of philosophical theories regarding the methods and authority of first-personal knowledge. I am particularly interested in how we learn from our mistakes about our own mental states & dispositions. 

Currently working on: know-how and self-knowledge, self-understanding, and more.

 

I am also interested in the same topics in Buddhist and Taoist philosophy.
