Recent Work In Naturalized Philosophy

Workshop, May 10-11, 2011

Naturalized Philosophy

Naturalized Philosophy conceives philosophy as continuous with the sciences. Perhaps not all philosophical questions can (yet) be answered by empirical means, but, in any case, philosophy should be done in a scientifically informed way. In this workshop we discuss how (recent) scientific results can be used to help us with philosophical problems in various fields of philosophical inquiry.

This workshop is organized in cooperation with the Center for the Cognitive Sciences and Semantics, University of Latvia, Riga.

The Venue

Raekoja plats 10, III korrus, "zaal"

Since this workshop is taking place during the term, we had to move it to a seminar room outside the university. The workshop will take place on the third floor of Raekoja Plats 10. The entrance to the building is to the left of the entrance of the bar Suudlevad Tudengid. More information under zaal.ee.
