Workshop on Perception, Action, and Time

June 2-3, 2011
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Department of Philosophy
UAB. Casa Convalescència:

Perception, thought and action have traditionally been considered constitutively independent yet functionally related mental realms. Much recent work in the philosophy of mind has either emerged from, or has resulted in, questioning the independence of these three realms. In such work, perception is often more closely related to action, or thought is considered to be a variety of action. Some of these new developments focus on experiences in which time is a basic factor, such as in the experience of something moving or the experience of succession. However, there has also been certain resistance to some of these developments. Alternative, refined versions of the more traditional picture have been offered instead. The aim of this workshop is to bring together philosophers from both sides of this on-going debate.
