The Madrid Philosophy Network (MPN) is honored to introduce the tenth edition of the Research Workshop on Philosophy of Biology and Cognitive Science (PBCS), an annual encounter of young scholars that aims at bringing together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds: philosophers, cognitive scientists, and biologists working on issues of common interest. In this workshop, young researchers can present their ideas and participate in the discussions, as well as attend the conferences of keynote speakers. Its main purposes are to serve as a tool for enhancing research through discussion and to promote the interdisciplinary of the ideas presented.
