Jack Shardlow


In the 2017-2018 academic year, I am leading seminars on Plato & Descartes (PH145) and Mind & Reality (PH144) in the autumn term, and Introduction to Philosophy (PH133) in the spring term.
My office hours are on a Thursday afternoon, between 4-6pm, but I would recommend emailing in advance so that a particular time can be arranged.


My research focuses upon the nature of our experience of time and how we should think of experience as being structured in time. This involves any temporal limits on what features in experience, temporal limits which may determine whether one can experience an object as moving or only as having moved for example; any temporal limits on experiences, such as whether there are principled ways of demarcating the end of one experience from the beginning of a successive experience; and an investigation of how probative analogous phenomenal principles can be in discussions of our experience of various phenomena in space and time.

I am also interested in issues concerning the relationship between consciousness and time more generally, where this involves one's passing thoughts, emotions, and moods, as well as one's episodes of remembering and imagining.

Other interests span a wide range of issues in the philosophy of perception, the philosophy of mind, the philosophy of psychology, metaphysics, epistemology, and aesthetics.


My PhD is being funded by the Faculty of Arts DTC (CADRE) at the University of Warwick.
