    Curriculum Vitae

    Pierre-Jean Renaudie received his PhD in Philosophy from Paris-Sorbonne University (France), where he taught Philosophy from 2004 to 2012 and defended a dissertation on Edmund Husserl’s theory of knowledge the emergence of phenomenology at the turn of the XXth Century. In 2013, he earned a FCT Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship and joined the MLAG research group at the University of Porto. He is currently working on a research project on the shortcomings of self-knowledge in phenomenology and philosophy of mind. His research explores the moral and epistemological difficulties that stem from the privilege granted to the first-person’s authority in self-knowledge.

    Pierre-Jean published a book on the relations between language and perception in Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology (Husserl on Categories. Language, Thought, Perception, Paris, Vrin, 2015), and several articles in French and English on topics related to intentionality, self-knowledge, epistemology, phenomenology and psychology. He wrote on Kant, Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Derrida, and is interested in showing how phenomenological analyses can address some of the challenges brought up by analytic philosophy of mind (mainly in the works of Sellars, Castaneda, Shoemaker, McDowell, Moran…). He has been working as a researcher in France, Australia, the USA and Portugal.
