In Progress (please email for drafts) 

  • Paper arguing that perceptual systems are encapsulated even if cognitive penetration occurs (under review) [pdf]
  • Paper positing a modular system for goal ascription and, in so doing, outlining some common confusions about the modularity hypothesis  (a very distant ancestor of this paper was discussed as part of Minds Online 2016, with commentaries by Kristin Andrews, Mitchell Herschbach, and Joulia Smortchkova)
  • Paper arguing that low-level visual representations are analogue (but not iconic in the sense relevant to [e.g.] pictorial explanations of mental rotation)
  • Paper about the architecture of object files
  • Paper defending the existence of a number sense (w/ Jake Beck)
  • Paper defending a lean account of the contents of experience
  • Paper introducing and (tentatively) responding to a puzzle concerning the role of motor processes in speech perception
  • Paper arguing that pain signalling is an encapsulated, modular process (but susceptible to various forms of cognitive influence) (w/ Laurenz Casser)
  • Paper arguing that the extended mind hypothesis fails (w/ Sophie Keeling)
  • Experimental paper, exploring effects of competition on visuomotor interference
