Morag, Talia Dr

Lecturer

  • Lecturer - School of Liberal Arts, Faculty of the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities

Overview


Talia Morag works in Philosophical Psychology and, relatedly, Ethics, specializing in the philosophy of emotion, practical reasoning, the philosophy of psychoanalysis and social psychology. Her broad project is concerned with emotional well-being and making allowance for non-rational aspects of the mind. She draws on insights of Hume, James and Freud in order to construct a new associationist psychology to explain the domain of affect, including emotions, moods and sexuality, as well as unreflective social psychological behaviours such as stereotyping and implicit bias. She also has ongoing research interests in contemporary pragmatism and liberal naturalism. Her book Emotion, Imagination, and the Limits of Reason was published by Routledge (2016). She is the founding director of Psyche + Society, which organizes public conversations in ordinary language about contemporary social problems from a psychoanalytic point of view. Talia held an Alfred Deakin Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Deakin University, after completing her PhD in philosophy at the University of Sydney. She holds a Master in Philosophy (Magna Cum Laude) from the University of Paris 8, as well as a bachelor’s degree in Physics and a Philosophy Honours degree (Summa Cum Laude) from Tel-Aviv University.
