Hanne De Jaegher (DPhil, 2007, University of Sussex) is a philosopher of cognitive science fascinated by how we think, work, play—basically, live and love—together. She developed the theory of intersubjectivity called participatory sense-making. Grounded in enactive cognitive science, dynamical systems theory, and phenomenology, this theory is applied across various academic and applied disciplines. Her latest project is to write an engaged—even engaging—epistemology, which understands knowing as based in the ongoing existential tensions of loving.
