Knowledge First Philosophy of Mind


, ,

– A new Templeton Funded research project led by Matthew Parrott (KCL) and Anil Gomes (Oxford) which will involve seminars exploring different ways in which central topics in the epistemology of mind can be brought to bear on questions concerning the nature of mind.  These will prepare the groundwork for a two-day international conference on the metaphysical implications of the epistemology of mind. Philosophical study of the mind has too long ignored epistemological considerations. The primary aim in this project is to explore an epistemology-first approach to understanding the nature of the mind.

The first seminar will be on 8 May.

The website of the entire project can be found here.
