Welcome to my institutional homepage, where you can find informations on my courses, on my curriculum and on how to get in touch with me. 

My research focuses mainly on problems in the philosophy of mind, often in connection with the philosophy of language, the philosophy of literature and aesthetics. I have worked on perception, the relation between mind and language, constitutive rules and social practices, literary language, and fiction and imagination. From a historical point of view I am mainly interested in philosophers of the twentieth century, in particular the School of Franz Brentano, early phenomenology, the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Wilfrid Sellars. 

You can find a complete list of my publications with links to the texts on the following site: http://www2.unipr.it/~huewol48/.
