Collective Intentionality VIII

Collective Intentionality VIII – as the name suggests! – is the eighth in a series of large-scale international events on joint and/or cooperative action, reasoning, decision, intention, attention, and associated mental and agential phenomena, topics that impact on issues in ethics and social ontology and which cross boundaries between philosophy, economics, politics and psychology. Previous events in the series have been hosted by the Universities of Basel (2010), Berkeley (2008), Helsinki (2006), Siena (2004), Rotterdam (2002), Leipzig (2000) and Munich (1998). This will be the first in the series hosted in the UK, and we are proud to announce that the University of Manchester has been selected to host the event.

In addition, there will be parallel sessions of submitted papers by delegates.
