MINDGRAD 2019: OURSELVES AND OTHERS

Warwick Graduate Conference in the Philosophy of Mind

7th-8th December 2019, University of Warwick (UK)

MindGrad is a long-established and well-respected graduate conference held annually in the University of Warwick. Our theme this year will be ‘ourselves and others’. We invite papers from graduate students who have interesting things to say about our knowledge of ourselves, our knowledge of other minds, and the relation between them. Questions that particularly concern us include, but are not limited to, the following: how do we come to have knowledge about our own minds and the minds of others? can we identify different kinds of self-knowledge? what are the roles of communication and emotion in knowing ourselves and others? and how should we characterise the relationship between first, second and third person kinds of knowledge? These questions lend themselves to approach from relatively diverse perspectives, and we encourage contributions from such various perspectives, so long as they are focused upon the central theme as outlined above.

Invited speakers:
Dr Stina Bäckström - Södertörn University
Professor Matthew Boyle - University of Chicago
Professor Jane Heal - University of Cambridge
Dr Joel Smith - University of Manchester
