5-16 October 2010, 3rd European Graduate School on Philosophy of Language, Mind and Science, Tilburg (The Netherlands) / Lausanne (Switzerland)

Date: 5-16 October 2010
Location: Tilburg (The Netherlands) / Lausanne (Switzerland)
Deadline: 1 June 2010

The respective parts of the Philosophy Departments at Bochum (Germany), Lausanne (Switzerland) and Tilburg (The Netherlands) coordinate their graduate education in philosophy of language, mind and science. In this context, week-long meetings are organized which bring together students from all three locations as well as interested graduate students from other universities. Each meeting focuses on one main topic, which is covered in extended tutorials by invited speakers. Additionally, students are invited to present and discuss their own work. The graduate school is kindly sponsored by the DAAD within the Bi-national Graduate Program.

This year's Tilburg week is focused on "Calculation, Intuition, and A Priori Knowledge", and is embedded in the series of biannual René Descartes Lectures, which will this year be delivered by Professor Ian Hacking (Toronto/Paris). There will also be two mini-tutorials, held by James Conant (Chicago) and Martin Kusch (Vienna), on aspects of Professor Hacking's work.

This year's Lausanne week focuses on reductionism in philosophy of mind and neuroscience. The main lecturer is John Bickle. Further invited speakers are Mauro Dorato, Michael Heidelberger, Max Kistler, Albert Newen, Michael Pauen, and Joëlle Proust.
