Sascha Benjamin Fink is the Juniorprofessor for Neurophilosophy at Magdeburg’s Philosophy–Neurosciences–Cognition Program. After studying Philosophy, History of Art, Japanology, and Biology at Mainz (Germany), Tokyo (Japan), and Florence (Italy), he wrote his dissertation at the Institute of Cognitive Science at Osnabrück (Germany) and, as a visitor, at Center for Consciousness at Australia’s National University’s Center for Consciousness.
He works mainly on philosophical issues in the neuroscience of phenomenal consciousness, where he focuses on what a neural correlate of consciousness is, how one can and cannot use introspective approaches, the role of structures to individuate sensations, varieties of ego-dissolution, the indeterminacy or precision of experiences. Additionally, he works on psychedelics, pains, paradoxes and the psychology of vagueness. Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Mind are his main areas of research and teaching in Theoretical Philosophy.
