Agency and Causation: Formal and Conceptual Issues

Date: 27-29 October 2016

Organization: Centre for Logic and Philosophy of Science (Ghent University) and Centre for Philosophical Psychology (University of Antwerp)

Topic:

The aim of this workshop is to stimulate the synergy between, on the one hand, ongoing work that concerns the logic and philosophy of human (intentional) agency, and on the other, conceptual and formal work on causation and causal reasoning. Although this means the workshop covers a very broad range of possible topics, we particularly welcome talks in which both (intentional) agency and causation, and their logical and conceptual interrelations, get a fair share.

Keynote speakers:

Venue: Royal Academy of Dutch Language and Literature (KANTL), Koningstraat 18, Ghent, Belgium
