Boyana Peric is a PhD student and teaching assistant in the Philosophy Department at Western University. She works primarily in epistemology and philosophy of science.

Her research focuses on the relationship between science and values, the autonomy of science and the notion of objectivity in knowledge.

Her other research reflects her interest in education. Currently, the appreciation of the type of education gained through the study of arts and humanities is in decline. Boyana’s research aims to illustrate the immense benefits of an education in the arts and humanities to the individual as well as society. Her interest and research in this area is inspired by Theodor Adorno’s essay “Education After Auschwitz”.
