Not only do people experience consciousness, they also attribute it. But how is consciousness attributed and what sorts of entities are ordinarily thought to possess it? Experimental research provides new insights into these and related questions. Join the Metro Experimental Research Group for a free workshop on this topic, as well as a conference of cutting-edge work in other areas of experimental philosophy.
Because we received so many excellent, submitted presentations, we've decided to extend the program of the conference for two days. Presentations will begin at 3:30 on Friday, March 25th, and conclude after the invited workshop on the experimental philosophy of consciousness at 5 pm on Saturday, March 26th. Invited presenters include Alvin Goldman, Kurt Gray, Edouard Machery, Shaun Nichols, David Rosenthal, and Susanna Siegel. To reflect the interdepartmental nature of MERG, the first day of the conference (the 25th) will take place at CUNY, the second (the 26th) at NYU.
You can learn more about the conference here. I hope to see you there!
