Dr Joel Krueger
Senior Lecturer (Philosophy)
I work on issues in phenomenology, philosophy of mind, and cognitive science (e.g., embodied cognition, emotions, social cognition, and psychopathology). I also have interests in Asian and comparative philosophy, philosophy of music, and pragmatism.
More information, including copies of my publications, can be found here:
I am an Associate Editor of the journal Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences.

I came to Exeter in autumn 2013.
Previously, I was a Research Fellow in the Department of Philosophy, Durham University, where I was part of an interdisciplinary project investigating auditory verbal hallucinations (Hearing the Voice). Before that, I was a Research Fellow at the Center for Subjectivity Research, University of Copenhagen. I did my Ph.D. in Philosophy at Purdue University, my M.A. in Philosophy at San Francisco State University, and my B.A. in English at the University of California, Davis. For a while I thought about being a poet until I realized I was terrible at it.
I grew up in Southern California, a bit north of San Diego. I still go back yearly to visit my parents, flail around on my long-neglected surfboard, and get horrendously sunburned. And also eat lots of fish tacos.
