Conference Announcement: Varieties of Intentionality

Dates: Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11

Location:   The New School, Arnhold Hall, Room I-202, 55 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011


On Friday May 10 and Saturday May 11, there will be a two-day conference at the New School for Social Research, titled “Varieties of Intentionality.” The conference will explore the question of whether there are multiple formats of mental representation and, if so, what, exactly, these formats are and how they should be distinguished. 

The conference will have a slightly unusual structure: the presentations will all be about the other presenters’ work, and will thus presuppose familiarity with that work. The conference website contains links to five essential readings that should be read ahead of the conference.
