Marko Jurjako is an associate professor at the Department of Philosophy and the Division of Cognitive Sciences at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Rijeka. He works in the area that intersects philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive sciences, philosophy of psychiatry, and metaethics. The common thread that connects his interests involves thinking about the problem of relating personal and subpersonal levels of explanation. This includes questions about understanding the relationship between “folk psychological” categories that underlie important social practices and scientific models of the mind/brain and their implications for our self-conceptions. In this regard, he uses self-deception as a case study for evaluating the capacity of scientific models of the mind/brain to account for personal-level psychological phenomena.
