Spurret's research is focused mainly on philosophy of science, cognitive science and philosophy of mind. He has authored and co-written journal articles and co-edited books on addiction, disordered gambling, voluntary agency and metaphysics, and published papers in a range of areas in philosophy and cognitive science.
