Workshop "Concepts & Reasoning"

20-21 Jun 2022
Bochum, Germany

“Concepts and Reasoning” Workshop, Bochum June 20 - 21, 2022

Center for Mind & Cognition, Institute of Philosophy II, Ruhr Universität 

We are pleased to invite you to register for the two-day workshop on the 
topic of Concepts and Reasoning, to take place at Ruhr University Bochum 
on June 20th and 21st.

The purpose of this workshop is to stimulate the dialogue between 
philosophers and psychologists on foundational issues in conceptual 
representation and reasoning. A major aim is to discuss the role of 
concepts in reasoning, with focus on how semantic similarity and 
typicality guide different forms of everyday inference. Other topics to be 
addressed in the workshop are inference and metacognition, generics and 
communicative intentions, and conceptual combination and modifier effects.

The workshop is organized by the Emmy Noether Research Group From 
Perception to Belief and Back Again, located at the Institute for 
Philosophy II of the Ruhr University Bochum.
