Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Skilled performance depends on a unique kind of mentality. It belongs to a category of embodied action that is distinct both from non-mental mechanistic movement and deliberate intentional action. Many agree with some form of these claims. However, there is little agreement as to how we should understand the nature of minds in skilled performance in more positive terms. What kind of mentality is it that makes skilled performance possible? This conference aims to explore this question by interlacing inquiries based on different philosophical approaches, including naturalistic philosophy of mind, pragmatism, and phenomenology.
