CFP: Arguing with Dan Hutto
We are inviting submissions to give talks at the day workshop titled Arguing with Dan Huttoand sponsored by the ArgLab to be held on the 16th and 17th of June at IFILNOVA New University of Lisbon. (http://www.ifl.pt/)
The workshop is themed around the recent and current research of Professor Hutto. Prof.Hutto´s work broadly concerns issues in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science, and philosophical methodology. He has developed a number of distinctive and influential positions concerning Wittgenstein’s philosophy, folk psychology (his narrative practice hypothesis) and, perhaps most notably, enactivism, under the banner of which he advances a theory of biosemiotics for explaining basic minds, including those of humans. His enactivist approach to mind and cognition is defended in his award-winning co-authored book Radicalizing Enactivism, and are developed further in a forthcoming book, Enriching Embodied Cognition, also written with Erik Myin.
Hutto will be speaking on topics and themes from the forthcoming MIT book.
Other presentations will include
· Dina Mendonça: Narrative Structure of Emotion
· Nuno Venturinha: Enactivism and Wittgenstein's Philosophy of Psychology
· Robert Clowes: Representations Outside In: Can embodied cognitive science do without representations?
Submitted papers will be presented for up to 40 minutes with 15 minutes of questions. Short abstracts of no more than 750 words should be submitted to email@example.com before 15th May 2015. Presentations that relate to recent themes in Hutto´s work are especially encouraged.
The conference in being organised by Robert Clowes and Dina Mendonça who are happy to respond to any questions on the meeting. Exact times of the meeting on the 16th and 17th of June and further details to be confirmed.
