4-16 September 2016, International Rationality Summer Institute 2016 (IRSI), Aurich, Germany

Date: 4-16 September 2016
Location: Aurich, Germany

Rationality is a key concept in psychology, philosophy, and neuroscience. A divide and conquer approach between these disciplines, however, has prevented them from benefitting from one another's progress. Typically, philosophers characterize what it means to be rational, psychologists empirically investigate where people's thinking conforms with and deviates from those norms of rationality, and cognitive neuroscientists investigate the neural correlates of rational thinking and decision-making.

The aim of the “International Rationality Summer Institute (IRSI)” is to overcome this division of labor and to provide a framework in which students can learn the state of research in the neighboring disciplines and discuss recent developments in the diverse areas of rationality research.

Application deadline is April 15, 2016. For more information, see http://irsi2016.de/
