Assistant Professor of Psychology
B.A., Loyola University New Orleans; M.A., M.Phil, and PhD, City University of New York
Dr. Eskine joined the Loyola faculty in 2011 after receiving his PhD and M.Phil from City University New York. He explores how our everyday embodied experiences shape our cognitive architecture. He has a special interest in abstract conceptual representations (e.g., morality, aesthetics, etc.) and how they might be grounded in our basic sensory and perceptual experiences. Other interests include figurative language, affective states, and philosophy of mind more broadly. Dr. Eskine currently teaches courses in cognition and introductory psychology and is an advocate for experiential learning.
Dr. Eskine's recent research in morality has received both national media coverage (The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Huffington Post) and international attention from Germany, Pakistan, Australia, etc. He looks forward to continuing this line of research at Loyola University and developing other programs of research in grounded and embodied cognition.
In January 2013, Dr. Eskine received the prestigious Faculty Senate Excellence in Research Award.
