Jesse Prinz

JESSE J. PRINZ, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy. University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, has research interests in the philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of language and moral psychology. 

He works primarily in the philosophy of psychology, broadly construed. He is interested in how the mind works. and thinks philosophical accounts of the mental can be fruitfully informed by findings from psychology, the neurosciences, anthropology, and related fields. His theoretical convictions are unabashedly empiricist. He hopes to resuscitate core claims of British Empiricism against the backdrop of contemporary philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

He is the author of numerous publications including Furnishing the Mind: Concepts and Their Perceptual Basis.
