CEU-Rutgers MIND Workshop

Academic & Research
Friday, January 6, 2017, 9:00 am – Saturday, January 7, 2017, 7:00 pm

The CEU-Rutgers MIND Workshop, a common initiative of both institutions’ departments of philosophy, is meant as the first in a series of annual events, alternating between CEU and Rutgers. Building on the shared and complementing strengths of both institutions, it will provide our faculty and students working on the philosophy of mind with an opportunity to present and discuss their recent research in the area. The workshops will also include presentations by people from Cognitive Science with relevant work.

The workshop is live-streamed at,N15_103.
