The Life & Mind Seminar Network

Possible topics for future discussion

Posted in General by Tom Froese on November 8, 2006

It would be good to agree on some of the topics for future seminars. Today several issues were proposed:

– the relationship between philosophy (and/or phenomenology) and science

– the relationship between being and doing (selected readings of Heidegger might be relevant here)

– what is agency? what is behavior?

From previous e-mail discussions it emerged that some people might be interested in holding discussions on the following topics:

– the concept of autonomy

– the role of representations in dynamical systems accounts of cognition

Is anyone interested in guiding a discussion on an issue of their choice sometime later this term?
