Participants at the 33rd annual Spindel Conference will explore philosophical issues concerning notions of intentionality, representation, externalism, and the causal or constitutive roles of affect and affordance, brain and body, tools and technologies with respect to consciousness and cognition. The conference will provide a forum where representatives of different, dissenting, and sometimes conflicting models in the phenomenology and philosophy of mind are brought together to debate these issues.
