Dr. Frédérique de Vignemont is a CNRS researcher and Deputy Director of the Jean Nicod Institute in Paris. She is the recipient of the 2015 Young Mind & Brain prize. Among her many publications, she is the author of Mind the Body: An Exploration of Bodily Self-Awareness (Oxford University Press, 2018) and co-editor of The Subject’s Matter (MIT Press, 2017). She is also one of the editors of the Review of Philosophy and Psychology.

Her current work is twofold. First, she works on body representations from a philosophical perspective, from an anthropological perspective. Her second main interest concerns the relationship between self and other. She is working on the hypothesis of shared representations of action and shared representations of the body. She is also interested in empathy and in theory of mind.
