Ingrid Vendrell Ferran New Voices Research Profile

My research interests are at the intersection of philosophy of mind and phenomenology, epistemology and aesthetics. I have worked systematically on the philosophy of emotion and imagination, on the philosophy of fiction, social cognition and on the varieties of knowledge. I have worked extensively on the history of the Brentano School and phenomenology and its relation to contemporary debates on the philosophy of mind.

Currently, I am editing Else Voigtländer: Self, Emotion and Sociality (Springer, forthc.). This book is the first to offer a full account of the philosophical work of Else Voigtländer. Locating the sources of her thought in the philosophy and psychology of the 19th and 20th centuries in figures such as Nietzsche and Lipps, the book uncovers and examines Voigtländer’s intellectual exchanges with both phenomenology and psychoanalysis. The major themes within her work are also considered in light of more recent developments in the philosophy of emotion, self, and sociality.
