Much recent thinking about the mind and the brain in psychology, philosophy and neuroscience has been preoccupied with questions about boundaries — including those between mind and world, between individual agents, between mind and the rest of the body, between the neural and the psychological, and between different mental capacities (sensation and cognition, perception and action etc.). This interdisciplinary workshop will address some questions about the boundaries of the mind from the perspective of different disciplines, in the hope of obtaining a richer picture of the mind and its complexity.
