Mental Representations. The foundation of cognitive science?

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

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

The notion of mental representation has played a central role in explanatory frameworks in philosophy of mind and the cognitive sciences ever since the cognitive revolution in the 1950s. However, cognitive science has been undergoing a constant transformation, first through connectionism and then through enactive and embodied approaches to cognitive phenomena. To various degrees, these paradigms have called into question the usefulness and even the coherence of the concept of mental representation.

This workshop brings together experts in the field who approach this problem from different angles, promising a fruitful discussion about whether future philosophy of mind and cognitive science should retain, discard, or transform the concept 'mental representation‘.

Registration: Participation is free but please register by email to nike.zohm@rub.de.
