About me


​​This is Lok-Chi Chan(陳樂知). I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at National Taiwan University. Born and raised in Hong Kong, I received my PhD from the University of Sydney (2017), and my BA Honours (First Class) from Monash University (2011). I work primarily on philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion, especially topics surrounding qualia, intrinsic and categorical properties, powers, naturalism, and physicalism. Apart from the discussions concerning the setups of naturalism, I am also interested in the dialogue between naturalism and all sorts of non-naturalisms.

My research has been published in leading philosophy journals including Philosophical Studies, Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Mind, Erkenntnis, Ratio, and Journal of Consciousness StudiesI am currently the Secretary-General of the Taiwan Association for Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science and Technology (LMPST).
