Research Interests:

she is especially interested in questions of mental causation, and in finding a way of reconciling the "manifest image" of human beings, according to which we are rational agents, responsible for our actions, with the "scientific image" of human beings, according to which we are mere physical objects whose behavior can be completely explained by the laws of nature. Related interests in the philosophy of science and metaphysics include questions about causation, explanation, and realism (both scientific and metaphysical).

Selected Publications:

"Belief and Consciousness," Philosophical Psychology, 1997

"Determination and Mental Causation," Erkenntnis, 1997,

"Feminism, Objectivity and Analytic Philosophy," Hypatia, 1995
