Daniel Gregory

I am a Maria Zambrano Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Barcelona.

My primary philosophical interest is inner speech, i.e., the 'silent voice in the mind' or the 'internal monologue'. I am interested in issues like the ontology of inner speech (Is inner speech just silent speech? Or is it a kind of imagined speech? Or something else?) and the application of action theory to inner speech (Are utterances in inner speech speech acts? Or mental acts? Or both?). I also do some work on dreams. I am interested in questions like whether it is possible to have memories during dreams.

My other philosophical interests include the philosophy of law and experimental philosophy.

I completed my PhD at the Australian National University in 2017. Since then, I have held various positions at the University of Fribourg, the University of Tübingen, and the University of Bayreuth.
