Dr Victoria McGeer (Princeton) – Intelligent Capacities
Victoria McGeer is a Senior Research Scholar in the Center for Human Values and Lecturer in Philosophy at Princeton University. She is also a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Philosophy at the Australian National University.

Her paper, “Mind-making practices: the social infrastructure of self-knowing agency and responsibility” was selected for inclusion in The Philosopher’s Annual as one of the ten best philosophy articles in 2015. McGeer received her B.A. in government and philosophy from Dartmouth College and her M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Toronto.
