Associate Professor
Department of Philosophy, Western University

Angela Mendelovici is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Western University. Previously, she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Philosophy at The Australian National University. She obtained her PhD in Philosophy from Princeton University in 2010 and her BA from McGill University in 2005. Her research is on intentionality, consciousness, and the relationship between the two. Her book The Phenomenal Basis of Intentionality, OUP, 2018) defends an account of intentionality on which it is ultimately based in phenomenal consciousness.

Angela Mendelovici’s research is on intentionality––roughly, the “aboutness” or “ofness” of mental states. Her main line of research develops and defends the view that intentionality arises from phenomenal consciousness (see especially her monograph The Phenomenal Basis of Intentionality, OUP, 2018). Other aspects of her research concern the extent to which our perceptual experiences and thoughts accurately represent the world, how representational states can be derived from other contentful states, and how the mind connects to the external world in an epistemically meaningful way.
