  • 2022 September 9-11: Philosophy of Cognitive Neuroscience: Content, Self, and Cognitive Ontology
    • Advances in cognitive neuroscience promise to shed light on matters of longstanding philosophical interest, including the nature of the self and the contents of thought and perception. At the same time, cognitive neuroscience, as a discipline, is the subject of much philosophical interest. What notion of mental representation, if any, does successful cognitive neuroscience presuppose? What methodological difficulties must be overcome if cognitive neuroscience is to flourish? What is the function of a localized structure or mechanism in the brain? Moreover, cognitive neuroscience provides fertile ground for the exploration of more general questions about methodology and scientific processes, for example, to do with explanation or causal intervention. This conference will provide a venue for the interdisciplinary discussion of all of these issues and more.
