My name is Jelle Bruineberg, I am a 2nd year PhD candidate in Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. Besides having studied Philosophy (BA, MA), I have a background in Physics (BSc.) and Cognitive Science (MSc.). In general I am interested in the big questions about mind and life. In my PhD I am developing an account of skilled action (or, more philosophically, intentionality), the kind of intentionality we exhibit when acting adequate and effortless, integrating insights from phenomenology, ecological psychology, theoretical neuroscience and embodied cognitive science. Complex systems science is the conceptual glue that holds this framework together.
