Fordham is hosting a philosophy of mind conference entitled "Alternatives to Physicalism" at the Fordham University School of Law, Room 3-01. Speakers include Ned Block (NYU), Brian McLaughlan (Rutgers), Howard Robinson (Central European University), and William Jaworski (Fordham). The conference abstract is reproduced below:
Physicalism represents the dominant outlook in philosophy of mind. Yet many philosophers harbor reservations about particular physicalist programs, and many others favor rejecting physicalism altogether. This one-day conference explores the metaphysics behind physicalism and some of the alternatives to it.
