This workshop offers early career researchers in philosophy of mind and cognitive science an opportunity for in-depth discussion and feedback on their work. Each accepted speaker will be paired with an early career researcher from the RUB working on a connected topic. The paired speakers will receive each other’s papers in advance, and prepare a detailed commentary. Each paper will then get 1 hour: 30 minutes for the speaker’s talk, 10 minutes for the paired speaker’s commentary, and 20 minutes for discussion. 

We invite papers in philosophy of mind and cognitive science, broadly understood. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
