Under Review

  • Self-consciousness in autism
    • By reviewing an important part of the empirical literature on emotions in autism that has been neglected, I suggest in this paper that the way autistic people relate to their own feelings is explicit and objective whereas neurotypical people rather have an implicit and subjective access to them. This particularity has consequences on several aspects of autistic people’s emotional life that are discussed in this paper.
  • Social-emotional salience in autism: moving beyond theory of mind (presented at the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology, SSPP 2019, Cincinnati) 
    • In this paper, I argue that Theory of Mind deficits cannot explain emotion recognition particularities, neither with a theory-theory, nor with a simulation approach. I then propose an alternative explanation in terms of social-emotional salience.
