THE NEW ONTOLOGY OF THE MENTAL CAUSATION DEBATE

Filed under: Anuncios — alexandre sousa @ 5:36 pm

International Conference 14th–16th September 2009
Old Shire Hall, Durham University
Sponsored by: AHRC, The Mind Association and Durham University

AIM: It has been suggested that the mental causation debate is ‘up against a dead end’ (Kim
1993), and even that a solution to the problem is forever beyond our reach (McGinn 1994). The
purpose of this conference is to present and discuss the latest research output of scholars
attempting to re-assess the problem of mental causation in light of recent advances in
metaphysics. A particular focus is on new accounts of powers, properties and causation, and of
categories and levels of being.
