I was a philosophy undergrad and am interested in the interdisciplinary work being done between philosophy and the empirical sciences, especially psychology and neuroscience. I am particularly interested in the role of emotions and unconscious processes guiding perception.

ErikErik Rietveld, PostDoc in Philosophy

rietveld@fas.harvard.edu

I am interested in phenomenologically oriented philosophy of mind, later Wittgenstein, Merleau-Ponty, cognitive neuroscience, emotion psychology, and ecological psychology. The aim of my research project is to develop a better understanding of unreflective action in everyday life. Issues I work on are situated normativity, motor intentionality and responsiveness to relevant affordances, including social affordances. An article of mine that touches upon several of these issues is ''Situated Normativity: The Normative Aspect of Embodied Cognition in Unreflective Action" (Rietveld, 2008, Mind, 117, pp. 973-1001).
