About the Author

Casey O'Callaghan is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis. O'Callaghan's research aims at an empirically informed philosophical understanding of perception that is driven by thinking about non-visual modalities and the relationships among the senses. His publications have focused upon auditory perception, speech perception, and the theoretical import of multimodality, cross-modal perceptual illusions, and synesthesia.
O'Callaghan is author of Sounds: A Philosophical Theory (Oxford, 2007). He received a B.A. in Philosophy and Cognitive Science from Rutgers University and a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Princeton University.


O'Callaghan's writing is lucid, clear, and engaging throughout. He displays laudable energy in considering puzzles raised by the empirical literature, and considerable determination to seeing through aspects of the project inaugurated by his earlier monograph. As O'Callaghan makes clear, there is considerably more to be explored and more to learn ... I would recommend it to anyone interested in contemporary philosophy of perception.
*Mark Eli Kalderon, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews*
