About me

Dawn M Wilson (nee Phillips)I am a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Hull.

I have two main areas of research:

(1) The philosophy of Wittgenstein, early and late, particularly the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. I have written on topics such as analysis, clarity, symbolism, language and the expression of thought.

(2) Art, Aesthetics and Photographic images, including work on aesthetic scepticism, time and the causal provenance of photographs, self-portrait photography and analogies between the ontology of works of music and works of photography. I am writing a monograph about Aesthetics and Photography which includes an original theory of the photographic process, centred on a notion I call the ‘photographic event’.
