Reading group: Philosophy of Mind

Organizer: Klaus Gärtner
Contact: klga@gmx.de

Group (regular attendees): Robert Clowes, João Fonseca, Daniel Ramalho

 

Content:

In this reading group we are in general concerned with issues from contemporary Philosophy of Mind, especially issues about consciousness and cognitive science. We have discussed a variety of different texts and have recently been focusing on problems around the idea of the extended mind. Everybody interested in those topics is welcome to join and we appreciate suggestions of texts or someone's own work.
