Metaphysics of Mind Workshop

2nd December 2020 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
A virtual workshop by Zoom, The University St Andrews, KY16 9L United Kingdom + Google Map

There are various recent theories of what is the relationship between the mental and the physical (such as grounding theories and panpsychism). This workshop is an opportunity to explore new theories and arguments concerning the metaphysics of the mind. This could be about mental properties in general or a specific kind of mental properties (e.g., phenomenal properties or propositional attitudes). Some relevant questions are: Are mental properties and physical properties identical? If they are distinct, what’s the relationship between them?…

Open Online Workshop: The Implementation Challenge for Conceptual Engineering (ICCE)

10th December 2020 - 11th December 2020
A virtual workshop by Zoom, The University St Andrews, KY16 9L United Kingdom + Google Map

  CONCEPTUAL ENGINEERING is an exciting new movement in analytic philosophy that focuses on assessing and improving our conceptual schemes and repertoires. The ICCE Open Online Workshop takes the next step and addresses the issue of how to implement on the ground the ameliorative strategies that conceptual engineers may have come to advocate for. To date, the implementation challenge for conceptual engineering has been formulated (Cappelen and Plunkett 2020, Deutsch 2020), but never specifically addressed, except in a couple of very recent or forthcoming works…

Breaking Down the Barriers: Applied Conceptual Engineering (ACE)

May 13 - May 14
A virtual Conference – by Zoom,

  DESCRIPTION Conceptual engineering focuses on how best to assess and improve our conceptual apparatuses. In less than half a decade, it has become a central topic of contemporary analytic philosophy. Current work in conceptual engineering goes in two main directions. Case study research, on the one hand, which focuses on specific concepts and then advocates for specific improvement. Metaphilosophical research, on the other hand, which focuses on conceptual engineering qua philosophical method and deals, for instance, with issues related…

How Could Truth be Plural?

June 18 - June 19
A virtual Conference – by Zoom,

It has been nearly thirty years since Crispin Wright’s Truth and Objectivity was published, and in these thirty years alethic pluralism has established itself as a strong contender in the current debate on truth. Yet, while various intricate versions of alethic pluralism have been developed over the years, many philosophers are still hesitant to buy into the very idea that truth is plural. Our conference, “How Could Truth Possibly Be Plural?”, offers the alethic pluralist the opportunity to face their…

Integrated Information Theory: Current State and Perspectives

June 24 - June 25
A virtual Conference – by Zoom,

One of the most intriguing theories of consciousness developed during the past twenty years is the Integrated Information Theory (IIT). Its core idea is that consciousness is identical with integrated information, that is, with the amount of information a system can generate as a whole, over and above the information produced by its component parts taken independently from each other. IIT represents an articulate, interdisciplinary attempt at characterising what consciousness is and how it works in a scientifically robust way,…
