About

The Brains blog is a leading forum for research in the philosophy and science of mind. It was founded in 2005 by Gualtiero Piccinini, administered by John Schwenkler from late 2011 to mid 2020 (with Robert Briscoe, Cameron Buckner, Daniel Burnston, Nick Byrd, Aaron Henry, Kristina Musholt, and Katrina Sifferd as contributing editors), and co-managed by Daniel Burnston and Nick Byrd since mid 2020 (with continued contribution from Robert Briscoe and Aaron Henry as well as some new contributing editors—TBA).

The Brains community enjoys regular symposia on targeted articles from journals such as ErgoMind & LanguageNeuroethics, and Neuroscience of Consciousness, visits from leading philosophers and scientists to discuss their books published by major academic presses, and announcements about exciting opportunities with fellow online cognitive science communities.

The Brains blog hosts over 2000 posts which have been viewed over 1,000,000 times—drawing at least 15,000 visitors per month. You can help us cover the cost of hosting this content with a one-time payment or a recurrent payment via PayPal or Patreon below.
