Joe Smith

Joe was a journalist before reading Daniel Kahneman and Jonathan Haidt made him drop what he was doing and go back to school. He's now a researcher affiliated to the Wellcome Centre for Cultures of Health at the University of Exeter in the UK. Coming to psychology from philosophy, Joe is fascinated by how discoveries in cognitive science are changing our perception of big philosophical questions. For example, what neuroscience implies about personal identity, what evolution tells us about morality, and what ramifications cognitive biases have for the discipline of philosophy itself.
