Benjamin Henke

I’m a philosopher specializing in the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and epistemology, with an emphasis on perception.

I recently received my PhD in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology at Washington University in St. Louis. I founded and help run my department's Mind and Perception Group, which hosts several outside speakers each semester. Starting in October 2021, I'm a postdoctoral researcher in the Psyphas Program in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Haifa.
