CFP: III Workshop on Philosophy and Cognitive Science
Submission deadline: Wednesday, August 1 2012
Wednesday, November 14 2012 - Friday, November 16 2012
Argentine Society for Philosophical Analysis
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Based on the idea that empirical research illuminates philosophical problems about the mind while philosophical reflection contributes to the development of theories in cognitive science, this workshop aims to create a biennial forum to discuss problems that lie at the intersection of philosophy and cognitive science. Examples of relevant topics are, inter alia, mental representations, cognitive architecture, concepts, perception, innatism, consciousness, and self-knowledge. Preference will be given to submissions from different philosophical perspectives (i.e. philosophy of mind and philosophy of cognitive science, phenomenology, etc.) as well as the disciplines that constitute cognitive science (i.e. psychology, linguistics, etc.) which deal directly with these issues. We invite all those interested to send in submissions for 40-minute presentations in English or Spanish –including discussion. Submissions should take the form of a 1500-word abstract presenting the main argument. Submissions should be sent by email in an attached .doc, .pdf or .rtf file to firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors’ names and affiliation should be given only in the text of the e-mail message. The abstracts will be blind reviewed by the academic committee. The committee reserves the right to request the full paper, if necessary.
Deadline for receipt of submissions: August 1, 2012
