International Association for Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences

Meeting of the International Association for Phenomenology and the
Cognitive Sciences (IAPCS), October 19, 2011

The IAPCS is meeting in Sheraton Society Hill, Philadelphia, USA, October 19, 2011, in conjunction with the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy.

We invite abstracts for papers that explore issues at the intersection of phenomenology and the cognitive sciences. This includes, but is not limited to, developing approaches to naturalized phenomenology, neurophenomenology, and the treatment of various issues (e.g., embodied cognition, perception, intersubjectivity and social cognition, etc.) that foster communication between the continental phenomenological tradition, analytic philosophy of mind, and empirical cognitive science. Phenomenology is here understood as a philosophical discipline and method in the tradition started by Edmund Husserl, and including the work of Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, and numerous others.

We reserve one slot for a graduate student presentation. Presentations should plan on 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for discussion.

Abstracts (maximum 500 words) should be sent as email attachments to:

Deadline for submissions is May 16, 2011.

Please feel free to distribute to interested parties.

On behalf of the IAPCS,

Joel Krueger and Søren Overgaard
