Research

Clare Batty works in the philosophy of mind and, in particular, the philosophy of perception.  Her current work focuses on olfactory experience.  She is currently writing a book in which, in light of recent empirical research on olfaction, she explores questions of olfactory content by considering the role that higher cognitive states, other modalities, and action play in olfactory perception.  In addition to the philosophy of perception, her other areas of interest include topics in metaphysics, epistemology and the history of philosophy.
