Nagel is bekend om sy kritiek van materiaal reduksionistiese oogpunte betreffende die verstand en bewustheid, veral in sy essay "What Is It Like to Be a Bat?" (1974) asook sy bydrae tot deontologiese en liberaal-morele politieke teorie in The Possibility of Altruism (1970) en gevolglike skrywes. Hy het voortgegaan met kritiek op reduksionisme in sy Mind and Cosmos (2012), waarin hy teen die neo-Darwiniaanse oogpunt betreffende die opkoms van bewustheid argumenteer.
