Brian Garvey supervises 4 postgraduate research students. Some of the students have produced research profiles, these are listed below:
My research interests cover areas relating to philosophy of mind and to the theory of evolution, and the interface between the two. I have published papers on the incorrigibility of conscious states, on psychoanalysis understood in the light of analytic philosophy of mind, and on the theoretical underpinnings and implications of Evolutionary Psychology. The last-named is a major focus of my current research, and I see myself as a friendly rather than hostile critic of the project of Evolutionary Psychology. I also have a special interest in the work of the philosophers of mind Gilbert Ryle and Daniel Dennett. I am currently editing a volume on the philosophy of J.L. Austin for Palgrave-Macmillan.
