Conference: Mind, Science and Everything!

Glasgow, June 25th & 26th, £15 registration

Our understanding of the mind and experience, once the product of largely a priori reasoning and speculation, has increasingly profited from discoveries in the empirical sciences.  Most obviously, philosophers have drawn on data from the neurosciences and psychology, but research from such disparate fields as biological evolution, psychiatry and quantum physics has also been claimed to have possible implications for the philosophies of mind and perception.

The Centre for the Study of Perceptual Experience is convening a graduate conference to promote interdisciplinary discussion of the relationship between the philosophies of mind and perception and relevant scientific disciplines.  In particular we are interested in exploring issues related to the following questions:

  • What is the role of empirical evidence in informing and shaping philosophical theories?
  • How do philosophical theories guide and influence scientific research?
  • To what extent does philosophy of mind go beyond the reach of science?

Registration for the conference is now open. To register please visit the conference website.

The registration fee for the conference is £15 and this includes the attendance fee for both days, lunch, teas and coffee. The conference main dinner, which will be held on the evening of the 26th, is a further £15.

The registration deadline is Sunday 20th of June.

For all enquiries please email either John Donaldson j.donaldson.1@research.gla.ac.uk or Andy MacGregor a.macgregor.1@research.gla.ac.uk.
