Knowledge and Representation: Medieval and Early-Modern Theories of Cognition

Wanneer:wo 25-09-2013 13:30 - 17:00
Waar:Faculty of Philosophy, Room Omega

Workshop in connection with the public defence of Han Thomas Adriaenssen's dissertation

Recent work in the history of epistemology and cognitive theory suggests that there is much to be gained from crossing the disciplinary boundaries between Medieval studies and Early-Modern scholarship. This workshop aims at presenting Medieval and Early-Modern accounts of knowledge and cognition together. This will help to see both parallels and differences between accounts of knowledge, representation and cognition from both periods.
