Philosophy and Affective Science



I work at the intersection of philosophy of emotion, epistemology, and cognitive science. My main project concerns the epistemic value of negative affective states, and particularly anxiety.

A collaboration with Heidy Meriste, PhD student in Philosophy at the University of Tartu, on distinguishing (future-focused) guilt from punishment anxiety.


This paper is concerned with the familiar phenomenon that some authors have captured under the label “epistemic anxiety” (Hookway 1998, Nagel 2010). I propose a unified account of the nature and specific content of this state, relying on recent work in epistemology on "Interrogative Attitudes" (Friedman 2013, 2017).
