Yaron Wolf is a DPhil candidate in the Faculty of Philosophy. His research examines Henri Bergson's conception of experience, in the context of the history of empiricism and contemporary philosophy of mind. Yaron's interests include the nature of perceptual knowledge, the different ecologies of perception, mediation and the possibilities of alienation inherent in human experience, and the significance of philosophical problems. He holds an MA in Philosophy (Summa Cum Laude) from Tel Aviv University, with a dissertation on George Berkeley’s philosophy of perception. His wider specializations include early modern philosophy, the philosophy of mind, and pragmatism.
Yaron organized the first international conference on Bergson’s thought in Oxford, Bergson: Thinking Life, held in The Oxford Faculty of Philosophy and the Maison française d’Oxford in November 2016. During his DPhil, he has spent time researching as a visiting PhD student at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris.
