Uit het jury-rapport:
Bence Nanay’s has an
excellent PhD experience, in one of the best institutions of the world and with
some of the leading philosophers, such as John Searle. Even more striking is
the quantity and the quality of his published and forthcoming work.
Notwithstanding his still relatively young age, Nanay has already published in
the very best international journals and with some of the very best
international publishers. His research interests are wide and original, and he
seems to fully master the relative literature in all fields.
His ambitious research project
aims at studying human cognition (with a particular focus on
"action-guiding perceptual representations") by investigating the
intersections of several fields: epistemology, philosophy of mind, cognitive
science, theory of evolution, neuroscience. It is to be expected that the
candidate's spectacular background will make it possible for him to master the
relevant data and ideas that come from so many different fields.
