Organisation: Albert Newen, Kevin Reuter, Pascale Willemsen


Mental Representations. The foundation of cognitive science?


Mental Representations. The foundation of cognitive science?

21.-23. September 2015, RUB (Beckmannshof)

Organisation: Joulia Smortchkova, PhD; Krzysztof Dolega, MSc; Prof. Dr. Tobias Schlicht

Der Begriff der Mentalen Repräsentation kann als zentraler Terminus der Kognitionswissenschaft und Philosophie des Geistes der letzten 50 Jahre angesehen werden. Zahlreiche geistige Phänomene wie insbesondere Vorstellungen, Gedanken, Gedächtnis, aber auch korrespondierende kognitive Prozesse wie Lernen sowie flexible Verhaltensweisen werden mit Hilfe der Zuschreibung mentaler Repräsentationen erklärt. Dabei war es immer eine der zentralen Aufgaben von Philosophen anzugeben, was mentale Repräsentationen genau sind und wie sie sich in das naturalistische Weltbild der Naturwissenschaften einfügen.
In jüngerer Zeit wurde das Konzept der mentalen Repräsentation aus verschiedenen Richtungen kritisiert und seine Erklärungskraft in Frage gestellt.
Auf dieser hochkarätig besetzten Konferenz diskutieren namhafte Philosophen aus aller Welt an der RUB darüber, ob die Kognitionswissenschaft am Konzept der mentalen Repräsentation festhalten sollte, ob und in welcher Weise es modifiziert werden sollte oder ob Nachfolgekonzepte bessere Erklärungen geistiger Phänomene liefern können.
Zu den Sprechern zählen Andy Clark, Frances Egan, Rebekka Hufendiek, Anne J. Jacobson, Nico Orlandi, Gualtiero Piccinini, Albert Newen, William Ramsey, Daniel Ryder, Nick Shea, Joulia Smortchkova, Mark Sprevak, and Mike Wheeler.


Die Konferenz wird organisiert von den jungen Forschern aus dem von Prof. Tobias Schlicht geleiteten Projekt 'Situated Cognition. Perceiving the World and Understanding other Minds', das in den nächsten Jahren von der VolkswagenStiftung in Verbindung mit der an Herrn Schlicht verliehenen Lichtenberg-Professur gefördert wird.

Die Teilnahme ist kostenlos, Interessenten sollten sich aber zwecks der besseren Planung per Email registrieren bei Nike Zohm (BA) unter nike.zohm@rub.de.

Für Eltern kann während der Konferenz Kinderbetreuung vor Ort organisiert werden.
