David Bitter

My primary research is in philosophy of psychology and mind, concerning especially cognitive penetrability of perception, modularity, and hypnotic hallucination. Other areas of interest include computational theories of mind, cognitivist-emotivist debates in philosophy of music, and evolutionary theories of natural selection. In addition to my training in philosophy, I also hold a BA/MA in psychology, and I completed a one-year academic program in Jewish Studies. When not thinking about philosophical puzzles or psychological experiments, I enjoy listening to North-Indian classical music, flamenco and various genres of jazz, as well as watching indie movies and tasting handcraft beers.
