About me


​​This is Lok-Chi Chan(陳樂知). I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at National Taiwan University. I have a PhD from the University of Sydney (2017), and a BA Honours (First Class) from Monash University (2011). I work primarily on philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion, especially topics surrounding qualia, categorical properties, naturalism, and physicalism. My other philosophical interests include (but are not limited to) political philosophy, philosophy of cognitive science, meta-ethics, and epistemology.
