Dr. Jordan Taylor is a lecturer in the Critical Writing Program at Penn. He holds a PhD in philosophy, earned at Penn in 2018, with a focus on the philosophy of psychology, neuroscience, and biology. His research examines the evolutionary and neural nature of consciousness and cognition, the history of emotion research, and the rhetorical quirks of scientific discourse. This latter project involves examining how domain-specific concepts and ideas are altered when communicated by experts to nonexperts. His collaborative works on this topic have been published in peer-reviewed journals such as Cognition, Acta Psychologica, and Judgment and Decision Making.
