Yaron Wolf is a DPhil candidate in the Faculty of Philosophy. His research engages with a number of central questions in the philosophy of time and mind, including: how should we properly account for the experienced passage of time, its ‘flow’? Does temporal experience itself unfold in time, or does it only have temporal properties as its content? How does the experience of temporal properties relate to our experience of agency? His DPhil thesis develops accounts of these issues, based on a critical examination of contemporary scholarship as well as insights from Henri Bergson’s (1859-1941) work.
Yaron is the co-editor (with Mark Sinclair) of an upcoming comprehensive volume on Bergson's thought, The Bergsonian Mind, to be published by Routledge in 2020 as part of their Routledge Philosophical Minds series. During his studies, he organized the first international conference on Bergson’s thought in Oxford. He has spent time researching as a visiting Ph.D. student at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, and has taught philosophy courses at the University of Oxford and Tel Aviv University. Before his doctorate, he completed an M.A in Philosophy at Tel Aviv University, with a dissertation on George Berkeley's theory of perception. Yaron's wider specializations include early modern philosophy, post-Kantian European thought (particularly in the French context), and pragmatism.
