The Townsend Center Working Group in the Philosophy of Mind is an interdisciplinary project in philosophy, psychology and neuroscience. Our aim is to promote dialogue and foster collaboration among researchers in these overlapping disciplines.
Our meetings consist of a talk and a question session. They're led by an invited speaker, usually from Berkeley or another Bay area institution, whose work is of particular relevance to the interests of the group. We gather for refreshments after each meeting, so that graduate students, post-doc's and faculty from different departments can get to know one another.
The Townsend Humanities Lab gives us an exciting opportunity to extend our reach beyond the Bay area. Our discussions will continue online, and if you share the interests of the group but can't get to our meetings, we encourage you to join the group and get involved.
