Dr Dan O'Brien

After graduating in Biological Sciences / Genetics, I spent 4 years living in Birmingham working on various Arts and Crafts projects and reading Philosophy. This led to a part-time postgraduate diploma, MA, MPhil and PhD. I was extremely pleased to then secure a job in the Department in which I had studied, and this is now my fourth year there as a teacher. I have also taught Philosophy in various schools across Birmingham; classes were featured in a Times Educational Supplement article entitled 'Think about It'.

My main research interests are in the Philosophy of Mind and Epistemology; This year I am teaching level 1 and level 3 modules in the Philosophy of Mind, and a level 2 module in Epistemology. I am currently under contract to write two books: An Introduction to Epistemology, Polity Press (forthcoming, 2005), and A Reader’s Guide to Hume’s Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding, Continuum (with A. Bailey) (Forthcoming, 2006); I have also been published in Discourse, Philosophy, Philosophy in Review, The Internet Encyclopaedia of Philosophy.

Outside of Philosophy I am a keen outdoors enthusiast, cycle tourist and hillwalker.
