  • Fordham University Lincoln Center Campus 150 W 62nd St New York, NY, 10023 United States

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.
