IV Workshop on Philosophy and Cognitive Science: Buenos Aires, Argentina. November 12th-14th, 2014


IV Encuentro de Filosofía y Ciencia Cognitiva

Invited speakers

Dorit Bar-On (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

John Collins (University of East Anglia)

Hanne De Jaegher (University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU)

 Based on the idea that empirical research illuminates philosophical problems about the mind while philosophical reflection contributes to the development of theories in cognitive science, this workshop aims to create a biennial forum to discuss problems that lie at the intersection of philosophy and cognitive science. Examples of relevant topics are, inter alia, mental representations, cognitive architecture, concepts, perception, innatism, consciousness, and self-knowledge. Preference will be given to submissions from different philosophical perspectives (i.e. philosophy of mind and philosophy of cognitive science, phenomenology, etc.) as well as the disciplines that constitute cognitive science (i.e. psychology, linguistics, etc.) which deal directly with these issues.

 We invite all those interested to send in submissions for 40-minute presentations in English or Spanish –including discussion. Submissions should take the form of a 1500-word abstract presenting the main argument. Submissions should be sent by e-mail in an attached .doc, .pdf or .rtf file to wpcc.efcc@gmail.com. Authors’ names and affiliation should be given only in the text of the e-mail message. The abstracts will be blind reviewed by the academic committee. The committee reserves the right to request the full paper, if necessary.
