Bio/Research

Prof. Bailey has expertise in topics concerning phenomenal consciousness, physicalism (zombies!), mental causation and epiphenomenalism, phenomenal intentionality, panpsychism, and theories of perception. He is also interested in embodied cognition and theories of the self/non-self.

Prof. Bailey asks big questions about the nature of consciousness. In conjunction with neuroscientists, experimental psychologists, and linguists, among others, Prof. Bailey is pursuing a testable, empirical, scientific theory of how consciousness arises, how it is related to the brain, and what one might discover in the zombie paradigm if consciousness could be subtracted from the brain.

He is the editor of an introductory philosophy textbook called First Philosophy, and co-editor of the two-volume Broadview Anthology of Social and Political Thought.
