PMS WIPS: Philosophy and/of Mind (and/or) Science Works In Progress Sessions
PMS WIPS is an online forum for the discussion of works in progress in the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and related areas.
Submissions for PMS WIPS will be reviewed by co-editors Brian Keeley (Pitzer College), Pete Mandik (William Paterson University), and Dan Weiskopf (University of South Florida). Accepted contributions and discussion forums will be hosted on Pete Mandik’s blog, Brain Hammer. Accepted contributions will remain on the blog for only six months (but may be removed earlier at the contributor’s request) to ease any worries contributors might have regarding prior publication of works to be sent later to the journals.
Our current plan is to post accepted contributions twice a month, but we may increase the frequency later. Our schedule for the next several weeks is:
- Sept 15, 2006 – PMS WIPS 001 – Tad Zawidski, George Washington University – The Function of Folk Psychology: Mind Reading or Mind Shaping?
- Oct 1, 2006 – PMS WIPS 002 – Richard Brown, CUNY Graduate Center – Kripke, Devitt, Bach
- Oct 15, 2006 – PMS WIPS 003 – Paula Droege, Pennsylvania State University – Now or Never: How Consciousness Represents Time
Please email contributions (with accompanying abstracts) to Pete Mandik (petemandik @ petemandik.com). Feel free to contact any of the co-editors with questions. We look forward to hearing from you.
