My main research interests are in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science, particularly the metaphysics of mind: the problem of mental causation, the mind-body problem, and the prospects for materialist accounts of mental phenomena.
I also take an interest in reductive versus non-reductive projects in science more generally, the development of the philosophy of mind in the twentieth century, the philosophy of art, and David Hume.
Details of my publications and research can be found on my personal website: www.drdonaldson.org
I lecture on an ad hoc basis in Philosophy, School of Humanities, where I also tutor. In addition, I teach philosophy in Short Courses, in External Relations.
