Jennifer Nagel

Professor of Philosophy at University of Toronto

My research focuses on knowledge, belief, and our capacities to track these states in ourselves and others. I’m interested in the history of epistemology, both in the Western tradition back to Plato, and in the Classical Indian and Tibetan traditions.  I also work in contemporary philosophy of mind, with special interests in metacognition and mental state attribution.

Here’s the start of a series of short videos on epistemology that I’ve done with Wireless Philosophy (WiPhi). Massive credit is due to animators Luke Roelofs and Damian Melamedoff.
