Demian's research interests include philosophy of emotion, phenomenal consciousness, moral psychology, and various issues in medical ethics, including decision-making capacity.
Demian's main research focuses on issues arising in philosophy of mind. He is particularly interested in the nature of emotion (he defends the much-disputed view that emotions are non-representational/non intentional feeling states) and how emotion might connect to motivation, moral thought, and the self, and has recently published a book that explores these themes. He is interested also in phenomenal consciousness, including whether there is an appearance/reality distinction in the case of conscious mental states and the way they feel to us (he argues there is not), and the question of whether phenomenal consciousness is the real mark of the mental (he thinks it is).
