    • naturalizing phenomenology and the empirical cognitive sciences
    • phenomenology and consciousness
    • consciousness and self-consciousness, including perception and action

    • intentionality
    • the embodied mind
    • action
    • knowledge of other minds
    • situated and extended minds
