Winter School on Rationality, 27-28 Jan 2014, Groningen, THE NETHERLANDS

On January 27th-28th 2014, the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of 
Groningen will host a short Winter School aimed at advanced undergraduate 
students and early-stage graduate students. The theme of the winter school 
is Rationality, and it will consist of 5 tutorials of 2 sessions each 
where the topic will be discussed from different viewpoints: theoretical 
rationality, practical rationality, and the history of the concept of 

          * Catarina Dutilh Novaes: ?Rationality and the psychology of reasoning?
          * Martin Lenz: ?Rationalism in the history of philosophy?
          * Jan-Willem Romeijn: ?Rationality and scientific method?
          * Bart Streumer: ?Philosophical views on practical reasoning?
          * Peter Timmerman: 'Social contract theory and rationality'

 Moreover, Prof. Pauline Kleingeld may deliver a guest lecture (TBC). As 
such, the program will showcase the high level of teaching and research of 
the three departments of the Faculty (theoretical philosophy; ethics, 
social and political philosophy; history of philosophy). The winter school 
aims in particular (but not exclusively) to attract potential talented 
students for our Research Masters? program, who in this way will have the 
opportunity to become acquainted with the Faculty and the different lines 
of research we pursue.  SCHOLARSHIPS The Faculty is offering up to three 
EUR 300 scholarships for the best students enrolling in the winter school, 
and who express serious interest in later applying for the Research 
Masters? program. Moreover, participants who are then accepted in the 
Research Masters? program for the year 2014/2015 will have their 
registration fee for the winter school reimbursed. To apply for the 
scholarships, send a short CV (max 2 pages) and a letter (max 1 page) 
stating your interest in the Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen and the 
Research Masters? program in particular, to winterschoolphilosophy 'at' with 'Application for winter school scholarship' as 
subject. Deadline to apply for the scholarships: December 1st 2013. 
Preference will be given to members of underrepresented groups in 
philosophy (women, people of color, persons with disabilities etc.). 
REGISTRATION To register, send an email with your name, affiliation and 
status (undergraduate, graduate) to winterschoolphilosophy 'at' with 'Registration for winter school' as subject, no later 
than December 15th 2013. As the number of spots is limited, you are 
encouraged to register early.  CONFERENCES Another attractive feature of 
the winter school is the fact that two major international 
conferences will take place immediately after the school, which makes a 
trip to Groningen even more worthwhile for those coming from far away. 
These are: Sixth Conference of the Dutch-Flemish Association of Analytic 
Philosophy(January 29-31) Dutch Seminar in Early Modern 
Philosophy (January 29-30)  GENERAL INFORMATION Dates: January 27th ? 
28th 2014 Scholarship application deadline: December 1st 2013 Registration 
deadline: December 15th 2013 Registration fee: EUR 50 (to be reimbursed 
for those later accepted in the ReMa program)
