Susan Brower-Toland (Ph.D., Cornell 2002) specializes in medieval philosophy and has general research and teaching interests in language, mind, and philosophy of religion. Her current research focuses on the philosophy of William of Ockham, and on later-medieval discussions in philosophy of mind including: the nature of intentionality, theories of judgment and, most recently, theories of consciousness.
