BSP News Item Thumbnail

Running from November 2020 – January 2021, speakers include Shaun Gallagher, Cornelia Eberts, Julian Packheiser, Marc Slors, and Joe Dewhurst.

The Situated Cognition Research Training Group based at Ruhr-University Bochum and Osnabrück University convene as series of events. The lecture series is part of the ‘Interdisciplinary Reading Club & Colloquium: Recent Debates on Situated Cognition’. Organization: Dr. Sabrina Coninx & Prof. Albert Newen

The joint Research Training Group (RTG) is based at Ruhr-University Bochum and Osnabrück University. Methodologically, it connects philosophy of mind and cognition with empirical research in cognitive science. The main goal of the RTG is to identify deficits in traditional conceptions of the human mind and to refine and enhance the existing conceptions by drawing on new developments in cognitive science that have not yet made their way into the prevailing philosophical approaches.
