Image of Daniel Weiskopf I am interested in the nature of representation in mind, science, and art. My work draws on research in psychology and neuroscience to uncover the structure of higher cognition and its relations to perception, action, the body, and the world. I'm also interested in the modeling techniques used by the cognitive and behavioral sciences to explain the workings of the mind/brain. Recently I have begun to work on images and the limits of representation in the visual arts.

I received my BA from UC Berkeley in 1996 and my MA from Brown University in 1999, both in philosophy. In 2003, I received my Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology.

Since Fall 2009 I have been in the philosophy department at Georgia State University. I am also an associate faculty member in the Neuroscience Institute. I am the editor of the Concepts area of PhilPapers and an Associate Editor for the British Journal for the Philosophy of Science.

FORTHCOMING BOOK: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Psychology (co-authored with Fred Adams) will be published in March 2015 by Cambridge University Press.
