Karina Vold specializes in Philosophy of Mind and Philosophy of Cognitive Science. She received her bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and Political Science from the University of Toronto and her PhD in Philosophy from McGill University. An award from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada helped support her doctoral research. She has been a visiting scholar at Ruhr University, a fellow at Duke University, and a lecturer at Carleton University.
Vold is interested in the extent to which our minds are inseparable from our bodies and our wider social, cultural, and physical environments. Her recent work focuses on theories of cognitive extension, consciousness, group cognition, agency, and framing effects on decision-making. As a researcher at CFI she will be working on the Agents and Persons project. More information on her work can be found on her webpage.Back to people
