Areas of Interest

Phenomenology, especially Merleau-Ponty, and phenomenological approaches to perception. Both post-Kantian European philosophy and Philosophy of Mind more generally.


Rebecca Harrison is a PhD student in the Department of Philosophy at UC Riverside. She received her MA from Georgia State University, where she wrote an MA thesis entitled “The Failure of Desire: A Critique of Kantian Cognitive Autonomy in Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.” Recently Rebecca has become especially interested in phenomenological approaches to traditional philosophical questions, particularly as regards perception, and the relationship between subject and world. Her current project focuses on Merleau-Ponty’s account of perceptual error, and of perceptual ambiguity more generally.
