Sophie Keeling


I'm currently a Juan de la Cierva fellow in philosophy here at LOGOS. I previously worked at the University of Edinburgh, first as a teaching fellow and then as a researcher (funded by an Analysis studentship). I completed my PhD at the University of Southampton (2014-18). Before that, I studied for a bachelors and masters in Philosophy and Literature at Cardiff and Warwick respectively.

My interests include the philosophy of mind, epistemology and the philosophy of psychology. I mostly research issues concerning self-knowledge, self-consciousness, and reasoning, and the ways in which they interrelate. My current project explores the role of self-consciousness in mental and physical agency.
