Dr. Fergus Anderson

The title of my recently completed dissertation is Researching the Experience of Conscious, Occurrent Thinking: A First-Person Approach. In the PhD, I use first-person research methods to explore the nature of the thinking experience as a basis for making some theoretical contributions to the current literature in philosophy of mind. Behind this rather specific interest is a much broader interest in the nature of consciousness and the human being.  I am also particularly interested in the philosophical work and research of Rudolf Steiner, and my Master’s thesis dealt with Steiner’s theory of ‘imaginative’ cognition. Other areas of interest include phenomenology as a research method and philosophical stance, cognitive phenomenology (and related fields) in philosophy of mind, and German Idealism.

I am also currently working as a programme lead and lecturer at Crossfields Institute in Stroud, UK.
