Joelle Proust studied philosophy and psychology at the University of Provence. A researcher at CNRS from 1976, she first conducted research on the history and the philosophy of logic. Her first book, derived from her habilitation thesis, Questions of form (Gallimard, 1986, Minnesota Press, 1989), received the bronze medal of CNRS.?? From then on, she turned to the analytic philosophy of mind: she published articles and books on intentionality and animal cognition (Comment l'Esprit vient aux Betes, Paris, 1997, Les animaux pensent-ils? 2003, 2010). She also explored the kind of awareness associated with agency and personal identity and in its perturbations in schizophrenia and autism. (La Nature de la Volonte, 2005). She further edited or co-edited seven books.
