Temporal Experience: Perspectives from philosophy and psychology

Interdisciplinary Workshop

Tuedsay 11th December

10:00 - 16:00

University of Leeds, Psychology Building, Room 1.33

Registration is free. Email prhp@leeds.ac.uk

Few phenomena so fundamental to our experience of the world are as puzzling as time. Questions such as how we perceive change, how we understand ourselves as existing through time, and how memory relates to temporal awareness are common to psychology and philosophy – and yet there is little in the way of communication between the disciplines. This one day workshop explores how their different perspectives can together illuminate the topic. The aim is to foster a mutually informative environment in which communication between the two fields can lead to new and innovative insights.
