2014 Spindel Conference - Alternative models of the mind

Submission deadline 15 January 2014

2014 Spindel Conference 
Alternative models of the mind
October 23-25, 2014
University of Memphis (USA)

Call for graduate student and postdoc papers or posters

A limited number of bursaries are available to provide partial support/reimbursement of travel costs to the conference for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in philosophy thanks to a Humboldt FoundationAnneliese Maier Research Award (cooperation with Prof. A. Newen, Ruhr-Universität Bochum). Please indicate whether your submission should be considered in the category of paper or poster or both.
Participants at the 33rd annual Spindel Conference will explore philosophical issues concerning notions of intentionality, representation, externalism, and the causal or constitutive roles of affect and affordance, brain and body, tools and technologies with respect to consciousness and cognition.  The conference will provide a forum where representatives of different, dissenting, and sometimes conflicting models in the phenomenology and philosophy of mind are brought together to debate these issues.

Proposals should address the following questions/issues. What implications follow for the way we think of minds from the idea that minds are embodied, ecologically embedded, enactive, extended, emotive, empathic, etc.?  How should we conceive of the mind on these alternatives to Cartesian or computational models? 

Keynote speakers:
Louise Barrett (University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada) Andy Clark (University of Edinburgh, Scotland)
Alva Noë (UC Berkeley, USA)
Evan Thompson (University of British Columbia, Canada)
