Profile

Dominic Gregory joined the Department in September 2004, after spending three years as a Research Fellow at Jesus College, Cambridge. He did his postgraduate work at Trinity College, Cambridge, and he was an undergraduate at UCL.

Research interests

Some of his published research has concentrated on philosophical and logical issues concerning necessity and possibility; he has written on modal logic, for example, on possible worlds and on questions concerning our knowledge of modal truths. More recently, however, he has worked on the philosophical problems which are raised by the contents of a wide range of 'distinctively sensory' forms of representation, including pictures and sensory mental images.

He has published a range of papers on those topics and he has published a book providing an account of the nature of the contents belonging to the relevant representations, showing how the resulting ideas may be used to address a wide range of philosophical problems. He is currently working both on that material and also on modal epistemology.
