Registration is now open for a one day workshop on Pain, Unpleasantness, and Motivation.

The workshop will be held on 30 May, and is hosted by the University of Glasgow Philosophy Department with the aim of better understanding how pain is related to its hedonic tone and motivational force.

The day will be organized around research by the presenters.

The workshop is part of the larger Pain Project. The Pain Project is an international, interdisciplinary research project focused on relations amongst pain, perception, and emotion, as well as pain in non-human animals. It is part of an overarching research program, Pain and the Nature of Mind, run by the University of Notre Dame and funded by the John Templeton Foundation.

Registration fee: £30
