17 octobre 2014 Hichem Naar (CRÉ)


Before coming to CRÉ, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences and the University of Geneva, and a member of the THUMOS Research Group. I completed a PhD in philosophy at the University of Manchester, where above all I had the chance to work with (and get to know) Peter Goldie. I was also supervised by Michael Scott and Joel Smith.  My thesis was primarily a sustained defence of the psychological category of sentiments, defined as irreducible dispositions to experience occurrent emotions.

My main research interests are in philosophy of mind, metaethics, and moral psychology, all pursued with a sensitivity to broadly methodological and metaphysical issues.

During my stay at the CRÉ, I will work on the relationship between various affective attitudes, particularly sentiments and emotions, and reasons.
