Thesis title: The Role-Bound Communicative Function of Blame

I am a PhD candidate working on a thesis about blame and its communicative function(s), and problems in that area. In particular, I think we can understand the area better if we separate ‘blamer’ and ‘blamee’ into accused, victim, speaker and listener, and see who takes on what roles in different cases.

I am also interested in metaphysics, philosophy of language, psychology (esp. perception), and logic.
