CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Minds without Magic: The natural basis of intentionality, 18-19 Sep 2013, Bielefeld, GERMANY

http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/philosophie/mwm

organized by Peter Schulte and Christian Nimtz

Talk about intentional states and mental content is deeply entrenched in folk 
psychology, scientific psychology and cognitive ethology. Nevertheless, 
intentionality itself remains a puzzling phenomenon. Philosophers have long 
tried to anchor intentional notions in the non-intentional natural world, using 
concepts like "causation", "information" or "function". These theories have 
encountered severe difficulties. In recent years, however, there have been 
fresh attempts at explanatory approaches linking intentionality to 
informational, causal-dispositional or functional facts. The goal of this 
workshop is to explore the prospects of these approaches. The main focus will 
be on teleosemantics, but alternative naturalistic accounts and general 
questions concerning the use of intentional notions will also be explored.

/Speakers/: Jens Kipper (Cologne), Brian Leahy (Konstanz), Manolo Martinez 
(Barcelona), Bence Nanay (Antwerp/ Cambridge), David Papineau (London), Eva 
Schmidt (Saarbrcken), Peter Schulte (Bielefeld).

A detailed schedule is available on the website (see link below). The venue of 
the workshop is room A3-126 (Senatssaal) at Bielefeld University.
