Hanne De Jaegher is a philosopher of mind and cognitive science. She is fascinated by how we think, work, and play — basically: live and love — together. For studying our rich social lives, she is developing the enactive theory of intersubjectivity, called participatory sense-making. Its concepts and empirical methods find application in, for instance, autism research and practice, psycho- and physiotherapy, education research, ethics, psychology, psychiatry, neuroscience, sociology, design and the arts, and she works together with researchers in several of these fields. She received her D.Phil. from the University of Sussex, UK (2007). Currently, she holds a Ramon y Cajal Research Fellowship at the IAS-Research Centre for Life, Mind, and Society, Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, University of the Basque Country.
