About Juhana Toivanen

My research in R&R pertains to medieval Latin theories of the so-called internal senses, roughly between 1200 and 1350. I focus on the manifold ways in which the joint activity of the internal senses brings about a unified perceptual experience of the external world. I study medieval discussion from three interconnected perspectives: (1) metaphysical unity vs. plurality of the internal senses; (2) experiential unity in which the acts of various internal senses are brought together; and (3) functional unity between different cognitive processes, which makes the perceptual representation of external world a dynamic and complex whole.

My areas of specialty are medieval philosophical psychology and political philosophy. I defended my PhD on Peter Olivi’s theory of perception and the internal senses in 2009. Since then, I have been working as a postdoctoral researcher and lecturer at the University of Jyväskylä (Finland). I held an Erik Allardt fellowship at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study in 2013. Between 2013–16 my main focus was on medieval political philosophy, which I studied in the context of my Academy of Finland postdoctoral research project Human Sociability in Medieval Philosophy. I spent the years 2010–12 as a visiting fellow at EHESS (Paris), and the autumn 2014 at the University of Cambridge.
