Benjamin Henke

I'm a PhD student in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology at Washington University in St. Louis. I work in the philosophy of mind, in the philosophy of cognitive science, and in epistemology.

I’m currently working on two projects: one concerning the nature of perception given distributed models of mental function, and another concerning the nature of epistemic responsibility.

I'm visiting at the Australian National University through Dec. 2019.
