Heidegger and Cognitive Science Workshop

Workshop website.

The workshop seeks to introduce key Heideggerian ideas to the participants in a conceptually clear manner - hoping to scrupulously avoid the obscurism sometimes attributed to continental thinkers – and link them to contemporary empirical research and philosophical debate. Emphasis will be placed on the ramifications pro and con for adopting a Heideggerian stance towards philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

The target group of the workshop is UK graduate students and faculty interested in philosophy of mind, and cognitive science. As this workshop will not involve detailed critique of either Heidegger, or phenomenology, we do not seek to target those interested in textual analysis of work done in the phenomenological tradition.
