About Me

István Aranyosi I'm a philosopher, currently based at Bilkent University, Ankara. I have a wide range of research interests. My earlier work used to be mostly in analytical philosophy of mind, but it will gradually evolve into a lot more empirically informed philosophy of mind. My debut book is The Peripheral Mind (Oxford University Press 2013). Another book is God, Mind, and Logical Space (Palgrave Macmillan 2013). I also sometimes write opinion articles in popular media.
