Mind, Agency and Perception Research Group
Inquiries about this research group should be directed to Jonas Christensen or Andy McKinley. This research group usually meets fortnightly on Thursdays in the Dugald Stewart Building at 4-5.30pm. See also the interdisciplinary PPIG research group in Mind & Cognition.
Mind & Cognition is one of the main research clusters in Philosophy at Edinburgh, and as such hosts a number of research activities including this regular reserach group. See also the Epistemology research cluster here at Edinburgh.
For the first part of the autumn semester we will be reading Michael Tye's Consciousness Revisited, (MIT Press 2009), This is in preparation for a workshop on Friday 6th November at which Tye will be present. Meetings will take place at the usual time (4pm on Thursday) and be held in room 2.37, 7 George Square. If you have any questions about this group contact Dr. Jesper Kallestrup.
