CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Modes of Explanation, 21-25 May 2013, Paris, FRANCE

http://modesofexplanation.org

We have roughly 20 spaces still open for the upcoming Modes of Explanation 
Discussion Conference to be held in Paris May 21-25.  (This includes six 
remaining subsidized spots)

To register please visit: http://modes.isce.edu

For more conference information please visit: 
http://modesofexplanation.org

Modes of Explanation

Three days to discuss and learn about advances in modes of explanation. A 
look at how our mode of explanation affects our affordances for action.

Modes of Explanation is a discussion conference, the actual presentations 
of attendee's work will occur on-line and only a five minute or less 
synopsis will precede the discussion session during which the work is 
discussed.  Updated information is at http://modes.isce.edu/update

The challenge to prospective attendees is to prepare a presentation which 
can evoke meaningful discussion amongst the attendees. One's presentation 
could, for example, focus on: 1) how we go about explaining and the 
limitations/strengths of our approach, 2) what kinds of explanations 
"work" and which kinds "fail" 3) the context dependency of explanatory 
form 4) the differences in use between "good enough explanation" and Kopplin & more

"truth claims" 5) the need for/use of mechanisms and "narratives" as a 
meaning of "explaining" (making understandable in a coherent way) some 
aspect of complexity or of a real in life complex system 6) how a reliance 
on sameness or of category as a simplifying reduction was inadequate to 
the situation being examined or 7) how modes of explanation vary by 
discipline.
