Workshop rationale:

The purpose of this workshop is to take a first step towards establishing a network of early career researchers (ECRs) working in the philosophy of mind and currently based in or visiting the UK by providing a forum to share research in an informal and supportive environment. One of the aims in holding the workshop, and the rationale for making attendance of the event by invitation only, is to offer a platform for ECRs to present work in progress, giving them the opportunity to receive feedback while they are still in the process of thinking through ideas and refining arguments, thereby providing support to ECRs in developing and publishing their research.
