7-8 December 2010, Workshop "From cognitive science and psychology to an empirically-informed philosophy"

Date: 7-8 December 2010
Location: Doelenzaal, Singel 425, Amsterdam
Deadline: 20 June 2010

The workshop will bring together logicians, philosophers, psychologists and cognitive scientists to discuss the interface between cognitive science and psychology, on the one hand, and the philosophy of logic on the other hand. More specifically, we wish to investigate the extent to which (if at all), and in what ways, experimental results from these fields may contribute to the formulation of an empirically-informed philosophy of logic, taking into account how human agents, logicians and non-logicians alike, in fact reason.

We invite submissions of two-page abstracts (roughly 1000 words) from young researchers and graduate students as well as senior researchers, working in philosophy, psychology, cognitive science and logic. We aim at having a multi-disciplinary line-up of contributed papers. PDF is the preferred format. Submission deadline: June 20th 2010. See 'Call for Papers' at the workshop's website for more details.
