My longest running research interest is in naturalistic theories of mental content. I have a related interest in the connection between theories of mental content and the proper nonsemantic characterization of mental representations. In recent years, I've been writing about extended cognition and the extended mind, about mental causation, and about various metaphysical issues related to the special sciences. Papers on all of these topics and more are available on the papers page.
