Frances Bottenberg

I research the nature and meaning of intelligence and its bearing on concepts such as personhood and sentience, particularly in reference to living with dementia. I am the co-editor, with Veljko Dubljevic, of Living with Dementia: Neuroethical Issues and International Perspectives (Springer 2021). I also write about issues in the philosophy of education and the scholarship of teaching and learning, especially related to learner-centered classroom strategies and ways to connect curricular objectives with students' personal and professional development.
