Currently: Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick
Highest qualification: Doctorate (PhD, DPhil)
I’m Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick, UK. My first job in Philosophy was at Oxford University, where I taught from 1986-2004. During this time I was a Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford. Oxford is also where I did my undergraduate degree (in Philosophy, Politics and Economics) and D. Phil. From Oxford I went on to be Professor of Philosophy at University College London, and then Knightbridge Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge University. I moved from Cambridge to Warwick in 2009. My first book was Self and World, published by Oxford University Press in 1997. It’s a book about self-awareness and the importance of bodily awareness for self-awareness. My second book, The Possibility of Knowledge (2007) is about ‘how-possible’ questions in philosophy – questions of the form, ‘how is such-and-such a thing (e. g. knowledge) possible?’ I published two books in 2014, Self-Knowledge for Humans and, with John Campbell, Berkeley’s Puzzle: What Does Experience Teach Us? In addition to these books, I also edited a collection of essays on self-knowledge in the series Oxford Readings in Philosophy. I live in London with my wife, Deborah Ghate, the Founding Director and Chief Executive of the Colebrooke Centre for Evidence and Implementation
