I originally came to Warwick as a research fellow in the HRB (now AHRC) Project on Consciousness and Self-Consciousness, after a year as Jacobsen research fellow at King's College London. I have also been co-director of the Warwick-based AHRC Project on Causal Understanding. I have a DPhil from Oxford University, and MAs from Sussex University (in Philosophy and Cognitive Science) and from the Munich School of Philosophy (in Philosophy), where I also obtained my BA.
I work on a number of different issues in the philosophy of mind and philosophy of psychology. One specific interest of mine are philosophical questions about the nature of temporal experience, memory, and our ability to think about time. Some of my work in this area lies at the interface between philosophy and psychology, but it also engages with figures from across the history of philosophy who wrote about time. I am keen to supervise PhD research on these issues, as well as on other issues in the philosophy of mind, metaphysics and epistemology.
If you want to hear me talk about some of my research, here I present some material that has since been published in the European Journal of Philosophy under the title 'Seeing motion and apparent motion'; and here I explain some arguments that have made their way into the paper 'Do we (seem to) perceive passage?', published in Philosophical Explorations.
You can find me on academia.edu, and on philpapers.org. I don't have a twitter account or facebook page, but if you are interested in studying or doing research at Warwick, please send an email to C dot Hoerl at warwick dot ac dot uk, and I'll be happy to respond.
