Rudolf Carnap Lectures & Graduate Workshop, Bochum (Germany) & Virtual

7-8 Jun 2022

Rudolf-Carnap-Lectures & Graduate Workshop (Keynote Lecture: hybrid;  all
other presentations: in presence)
Ruhr-University Bochum, June 7 - June 8, 2022

Prof. Cecilia Heyes (Oxford): Cognitive Gadgets
It?s an honor and a pleasure to host Cecilia Heyes in Bochum as our
Rudolf-Carnap Lecturer 2022! Prof. Heyes? work concerns the evolution of
cognition. It explores the ways in which natural selection, learning,
developmental and cultural processes combine to produce the mature cognitive
abilities found in adult humans. She is especially interested in social
cognition. Most of her current projects examine the possibility that the
neurocognitive mechanisms enabling cultural inheritance - social learning,
imitation, mirror neurons, mind reading etc - are themselves products of
cultural evolution.

Cecilia Heyes will give three keynote talks (also available via online
streaming). Additionally, there will be selected talks by Stephen Butterfill
and many more.

Registration is required for participation in person; please send an email
to: Nicolas Lindner,  <mailto:nicolas.lindner@rub.de> nicolas.lindner@rub.de
The link for following the keynotes online will be available on the page of
the Center for Mind and Cognition:

the Carnap Lectures soon: https://philosophy-cognition.com/carnap/program/

Please note that the event will be carried out adhering to the German 2G+
rules (Status of vaccination/recovery is validated, everyone has to do a
daily quick Covid test, masks are mandatory for everyone except speakers).

In detail, the 2G+ rules are as follows:

     All participants must conform to the 2G standard. This means that
participants typically have to be fully vaccinated. This is satisfied by two
up-to-date vaccinations. A third vaccination is highly welcomed, but not
mandatory. Please carry some form of proof for this.

     All participants need to be tested each day. This can be done via
official tests around the city (verified by an official certificate), or via
our own tests on-site in front of the building. A third vaccination does not
substitute the obligation to be tested!

     FFP2-masks or surgical masks are obligatory, especially when moving
around, during close discussions, at catering tables or during commutes to
other rooms. The mask must also be worn at the seat, but the speakers can
take their masks off during their talk. Each participant receives one mask
for free at the opening of the event.
