Daniel Elliot Weissglass
Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke Kunshan University

I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke Kunshan University, a Sino-US joint liberal arts university located in Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, China. I am also an Assistant Professor of the Practice at Duke University, a leading liberal arts research university located in Durham, North Carolina, USA.

I have two major research programs - the fundamentals of cognition and science, health, and technology policy. The fundamentals of cognition program explores intersections between philosophy and the cognitive sciences to improve our understanding of the mind and its operations. My science, health, and technology policy research explores ethical, epistemic, and political challenges arising from contemporary advances in technology and develops policy recommendations to address these challenges. You can see the output of this and related projects in a searchable listing in my published work page. You can also find out more about my teaching, including my teaching philosophy, courses taught, and sample syllabi on my teaching overview page.
