Professorship for Epistemology

Prof. Borgoni (Ph.D. 2009, University of Granada) is Professor of Epistemology at the University of Bayreuth since February 2018. Her fields of specialization are epistemology and philosophy of mind and her research focuses on two major issues, namely, the nature of beliefs and accounts of self-knowledge. Prof. Borgoni has published a number of works in top ranked philosophical journals. She has a series of published papers on the nature of dissonance and implicit cognitions, and also a number of papers on different models of self-knowledge. Prof. Borgoni is currently developing an account of the phenomenon of first-person authority and its relationship with personhood. She has a parallel work in progress on the epistemic failures of prejudices, including implicit biases.

Before coming to Bayreuth, Prof. Borgoni held academic positions at the University of Graz (assistant professor, 2013-2017), UCLA (postdoctoral researcher and teaching assistant, 2011-2013), and UCL (postdoctoral researcher 2010). Her thinking is influenced by her former teachers and supervisors, Tyler Burge, Lucy O’Brien and Manuel de Pinedo.
