The editors of the Brains Blog, together with the Departments of Philosophy at Florida State University and the University of Houston, are pleased to announce the program for the third annual Minds Online conference.
The conference will comprise three weeklong sessions in September 2017. You will find that each session has a keynote and a few contributed papers — each contributed paper with its own invited commenters. Typically, a brief video introduction will accompany each paper. As always, comments will be open to the public once the invited commentaries have been posted. And commenting will close at the end of each session so that our participants’ attention is always on the current session.
