Antonia Peacocke

Assistant Professor of Philosophy

Antonia Peacocke joined the Philosophy Department at Stanford as an Assistant Professor in 2019. In 2018-19, she completed a Bersoff Faculty Fellowship in the Philosophy Department at New York University. She received her Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley in 2018, and her A.B. from Harvard College in 2012.

Her main research lies in philosophy of mind, epistemology, philosophy of action, metaphysics, and aesthetics (especially philosophy of literature). She is particularly interested in topics that cross-cut these areas of philosophy.

Her current research projects focus on content plurality in mental action, the nature of aesthetic value, and phenomenal learning in literature.

In the academic year 2019-2020 she will teach Metaphysics (Autumn), a course in Philosophy and Literature (Winter), and a graduate seminar on Mental Action and its Pathologies (Spring).
