Topic & aim
In this group, the focus is on the capacities, powers and frailties of the human mind as manifested in practical and theoretical reasoning (i.e., paradigmatically, intentional agency and knowledge or belief). We envisage to discuss questions such as the following: What are the similarities and distinctions between making up your mind about what to do and what to believe? How do these capacities relate to the justification we have for the authority to speak our minds? And how, and to what extent, is the ability to know our mind – i.e., our practical and theoretical self-knowledge – related to the explanation of intentional action and thought, respectively?
Set-up & practicalities
The study group has three aims: (i) bimonthly discussion of a recently published paper, (ii) bimonthly discussion of a paper by (a) member(s) of the group, and (iii) a yearly international workshop.
