Professor Morrison joined the Department in 2009. He is currently working on two projects. The first is about the way that we visually represent colors and locations. It draws heavily on empirical psychology, particularly psychophysics and cognitive psychology. The second is about the first two parts of Spinoza's Ethics. It focuses on why Spinoza presents certain claims as axioms.
