Flavia Felletti

I have been the Uni­ver­sity of Duis­burg-Essen since Novem­ber 2016, where I am work­ing on my doc­tor­al dis­ser­ta­tion under the super­vi­sion of prof. Neil Rough­ley. Before, I com­pleted a Mas­ter of Cog­nit­ive Sci­ence and Lan­guage and a Mas­ter of Ana­lyt­ic Philo­sophy at the Uni­ver­sity of Bar­celona and a Bach­el­or of Philo­sophy at the Uni­ver­sity of Bologna.

My primary philo­soph­ic­al interests lie in the philo­sophy of action, although I also worked on top­ics at the inter­sec­tion of philo­sophy of mind and mor­al psy­cho­logy. My doc­tor­al dis­ser­ta­tion focuses on actions which involve a sub­stan­tial degree of auto­mati­city, in par­tic­u­lar habitu­al actions and skill­ful per­form­ances, and on the implic­a­tions that such kind of actions might have for our the­or­ies of agency and action.
