Timothy Bayne is a lecturer in philosophy of mind at Oxford University and a fellow at St. Catherine’s College, Oxford. His research and writing is mainly on the philosophy of cognitive science, with a particular focus on consciousness. Other interests include philosophical psychopathology. An honors graduate of the University of Otago in New Zealand, he went on to study at the University of Notre Dame on a Fulbright Scholarship and earned a Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Arizona in 2002. Dr. Bayne held a post-doctoral fellowship at The Australian National University and began his teaching career as a lecturer in philosophy at Macquarie University in Sydney. He has served as a visiting professor at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and Institut Jean Nicod in Paris and accepted his present position last year. The former executive editor of Psyche, he is author of some thirty-five articles published in academic journals and chapters in volumes of collected works. He is the co-editor (with Axel Cleeremans and Patrick Wilken) of the forthcoming Oxford Companion to Consciousness and (with Jordi Fernandez) of Delusions and Self-Deceptions: Affective Influences on Belief Formation, which will be published this year by Psychology Press. In a forthcoming monograph, The Unity of Consciousness, which also will be published by Oxford University Press, Dr. Bayne explores the implications that the phenomenon of experiencing perceptions, not as differentiated bundles of things but as aspects of a single conscious experience, have for theories of consciousness.
