  • Bodiless Affect (2012)

    Mind and body have been reunited by the "affective turn" in philosophy and (neuro-) psychology. Yet, for centuries they have been painstakingly kept apart, for a specific reason. Methodologically, to find out about the world, apply justice or follow news, independent confirmation has always...

  • Boosting Wisdom: Distance from the self enhances wise reasoning, attitudes and behavior. (2012)

    Although humans strive to be wise, they often fail to do so when reasoning over issues that have profound personal implications.
