Dr Casey Doyle, Junior Research Fellow in Philosophy

Dr Casey Doyle works at the intersections of philosophy of mind and epistemology, the study of knowledge. Most of his research to date has focused on the sources and value of self-knowledge. At St Hilda’s College, Dr Doyle has been working on papers on testimony, on the role of consciousness in providing us with knowledge of our beliefs, and self-deception. A central concern of his has been the question of why we find it intuitively objectionable or odd to gain self-knowledge and moral knowledge by testimony. Dr Doyle has recently presented on this topic for the College Philosophy Symposium and the Principal's Research Seminar. He is also in the process of editing an anthology on the epistemology of perception and organizing a conference on self-knowledge.
