8 - 10 June 2017, Rudolf-Carnap-Lectures 2017: Frank Jackson, Bochum, Germany

Date: 8 - 10 June 2017
Location: Bochum, Germany
Deadline: Saturday 1 April 2017

The Rudolf-Carnap-Lectures are an annual event started by Prof. Dr. Albert Newen from the Institute of Philosophy II at Ruhr-Universit├Ąt Bochum, Germany in 2007. The Lectures provide a platform for distinguished scholars to present their work in the form of several talks on their preferred topic. The focus is usually on the areas of Philosophy of Mind, Language or Science. In turn, graduate students interested in these topics get the chance to engage in extensive discussion and get in touch with state-of-the-art research. In addition, some of them have the chance to present their own work on related topics during a graduate conference, based on a peer review process.

From June 8-10, 2017, the next RCL will be presented by Prof. Frank Jackson (ANU), who is going to present his work on meaning, perception, and the nature of mind in Bochum, as always in the context of a Graduate workshop where several PhD students and Postdocs will also have the chance to present their ideas on themes from the work of Frank Jackson.

In addition to Prof. Jackson's lectures, several PhD-student or early postdoc presentations (constraint: PhD finished 2014 or later) are planned. In addition we have room for one or two experienced postdoc presentations: Postdocs (constraint: PhD finished 2010 or later) are invited to submit an abstract indicating it to be a postdoc-presentation. Topics should be related to the main theme of the conference in a loose sense. Papers will be selected based on a blind review process.
