We are preparing for the final day here today. Philosopher Shaun Gallagher will present on phenomenology and the study of the mind. Shaun is quite interested in incorporating the body, social others, and social contexts in our study of the mind. He will talk about how the orientation of the body, for instance, as lying or standing, can affect basic cognitive processes. In addition, the presence of social others and contexts is the crucible in which mind evolved. To the extend we want to fully understand the mind and the brain, one necessarily needs to take a social, contextual, and developmental view.
The weather seems most auspicious for the final day. After many storms, a beautiful full moon arose last night and the sun has come this morning! More later!
