The month of June is likely to be relatively quiet at Brains, though we will host our first Ergo symposium, on Bernard Molyneux’s “The Logic of Mind-Body Identification” with commentaries by István Aranyosi, Liz Irvine, and Jonathan Simon, shortly after the paper appears online, which should be pretty soon.
We are also pleased to be hosting several other events later in the summer, including:
- A visit from UBC’s Evan Thompson as a Featured Scholar, beginning the week of July 27.
- Visits from several authors to blog about their new books: Jennifer Windt (Monash) on Dreaming: A Conceptual Framework for Philosophy of Mind and Empirical Research, forthcoming from The MIT Press; Eva Schmidt (Saarland) on Modest Nonconceptualism: Epistemology, Phenomenology, and Content, forthcoming from Springer (Studies in Brain and Mind); and our own Kristina Musholt (Magdeburg) on Thinking about Oneself: From Nonconceptual Content to the Concept of a Self, forthcoming from The MIT Press. Exact dates for these visits are forthcoming, but they are likely to occur during July and August.
- Finally, our first Neuroethics symposium, on Farah Focquaert and Maartje Schermer’s “Moral Enhancement: Do means matter morally?”, will begin in August.
More details on these events, and some other ones too, should be announced soon. Remember that you can also visit our calendar and follow the Brains blog on Facebook and Twitter to be sure you don’t miss any of our events.
