List of Underrepresented Philosophers of Neuroscience

There is a new list of members of underrepresented groups working in philosophy of neuroscience (e.g., traditional philosophy of science topics in neuroscience, foundational issues in cognitive, computational, systems, molecular, and cellular neuroscience). The purpose of this list is to provide as comprehensive a list as possible of members of underrepresented groups working in philosophy of neuroscience in order to provide a tool for creating inclusive speaker series, workshops, symposia proposals, and other events. While other lists for underrepresented groups in philosophy exist, they tend to focus on philosophy of mind and neuroethics in addition to philosophy of neuroscience. These lists are also incomplete and primarily self-report.

For the purposes of this list, underrepresented groups include people of color, Latinx people, women, disabled people, and LGBTQA people. Much of philosophy also overrepresents the work of philosophers in North America, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, especially in English speaking countries. Philosophers working outside of these contexts (and especially those who are also members of other underrepresented groups) should be included in this list.

Please help keep this list up-to-date by adding members, editing emails, websites, affiliations, and/or area of interests. Please do not add philosophers of neuroscience (other than yourself) who are also disabled and/or LGBTQA. Philosophers of neuroscience who belong to these groups should be able to choose whether or not to be on the list. You can add or edit information by directly editing the Google Sheet or emailing morganthompson28 [at] gmail [dot] com.
