Research interests

Professor Lyons' CV

ORCID

I work primarily in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and cognitive science. Much of my research in epistemology is shaped by a substantive commitment to a form of process reliabilism, and a methodological conviction that empirical findings and theories can usefully constrain epistemological theorizing. I am interested in the nature of epistemic justification in general, also in evidence, perceptual justification, noninferential justification, the internalism/externalism debate, and epistemic defeat. In the philosophy of mind/cognitive science, I am currently mainly focused on cognitive architecture, modularity, the nature and forms of mental representation, perceptual experience, the cognition/perception distinction and related issues.
