AISB event Bulletin Item

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Understanding others, 11-12 March 2013, Oxford (U.K.)


Location: University of Oxford, St Hilda's College, Jacqueline du Pr 
Auditorium

Organisers: Dr Anita Avramides & Dr Michael Sollberger

The workshop aims to bring together researchers who work on the problem of 
other minds, i.e., the question of how we understand and know about the mental 
lives of other people. The problem of other minds is a topic that interests 
philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists alike. The interest in this 
problem can be explained by reference to its scope, variety, and 
inter-disciplinary nature. In fact, it forms part of the broader context of 
social cognition, i.e., of how we perceive, understand, emotionally apprehend, 
and interpret the intentional activity of others. There are many differing 
approaches to the problem of other minds within philosophy: there is the 
approach of analytical philosophy, as well as that of the phenomenological 
tradition. Even within analytical philosophy there are those who take this to 
be an epistemological issue and those that insist it is largely conceptual. 
There is important work being done in both psychology and neuroscience that can 
be
used to advance our understanding here. The workshop will highlight the current 
state of the art, provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, and open up 
innovative questions for future research.
