150 international researchers gathering in Tartu ({{commentsTotal}})

The 23rd annual meeting of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology brings psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer scientists, biologists and philosophers from 23 countries, including Austria, Belgium, Canada, the United States and Germany, to Tartu for the first time.

Professor of Theoretical Philosophy at the University of Tartu (UT) and the local organizer of the conference Daniel Cohnitz said that interdisciplinary research with linguists and psychologists is practiced and endorsed a lot by the philosophers in the UT Institute of Philosophy and Semiotics.

“We hope that such events also send a signal to the wider public that philosophy is not just pointless, abstract reflection in an ivory tower, but is in fact dealing with cutting-edge questions and problems that arise for researchers in linguistics, psychology, computer science and neuroscience,” Cohnitz said.

Previous conferences of the European Society for Philosophy and Psychology have covered topics such as spatial concepts, theory of mind, attention, joint attention, reference, problems of consciousness, introspection and self-report, emotion, perception, early numerical cognition, infants' understanding of intentionality, memory and time.

For full program, please see the conference's website (in English). The event begins today and ends on July 17.
