Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Is there a deep conflict between the ways we understand ourselves and the world around us in everyday life and the often strange and unfamiliar ways that the sciences describe aspects of these same realities? Is there a systematic way to dissolved perceived tension, or do the challenges need to be addressed case-by-case (with the possibility of failure in certain domains)?
Some of our speakers will approach these questions by exploring our experiential representation of such categories as color, time, causation, and agency, while others will do so by querying the ontologies implicit in the physical sciences and asking how we may ‘locate’ within them the presumedly non-fundamental objects and subjects of ordinary experience.
