Assistant Professorship for Theoretical Philosophy

Prof. Dr. Anne Meylan


ZEGRA is a Zurich based research group led by Prof. Anne Meylan. Our research lies at the intersection of epistemology, metaethics and the philosophy of action and is, thereby, intended to bridge theoretical and practical philosophy. Our research group is mainly — but not exclusively — interested in the following kind of questions: what counts as an irrational belief? What makes cognitive irrationality distinct from agentive irrationality (the one that occasionally characterizes our actions)? Is self-deception always reprehensible? What does it mean to believe things responsibly?
