PhD Programme

Gert-Jan MunnekePhD candidate Logic and Cognition since July 2013

'How do people handle moral dilemmas? Sometimes we can respond promptly on the basis of a gut reaction whereas in other situations deliberate reasoning seems required. In our research, we utilize an interdisciplinary toolkit combining methods from formal logic and ethics to neuro-cognitive psychology in order to understand the nature of reoccurring reasoning patterns that are typical of what we consider 'right' and 'wrong'.'


The ILLC PhD programme, organised by the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, is a four-year programme designed to support and guide PhD candidates in their track to become highly qualified scientific researchers in the areas described by the institute's research mission. PhD candidates are given the opportunity to benefit from a rich scientific programme as well as a tailor-made transferable-skills programme.
