Call for abstracts and invitation to: International Conference Self-Consciousness and Rationality: Interdisciplinary approaches

International Conference Self-Consciousness and Rationality: Interdisciplinary approaches
17-19 May 2017
Nicolaus Copernicus University, Toruń, Poland

The main aim of the conference is to present the new approaches to the problem of consciousness and rationality and to provide an effective dialog between disciplines and the different fields of philosophy, which can be fruitful for the solving of general problems of cognition. There are many reasons why the question of the conjunction between self-consciousness and  rationality is important. The main and general is the problem of the compatibility between thoughts and acts. Still the following questions need to be answered: Is there a relationship between pre-reflectivity and rational thinking? Is phenomenal subjectivity non-representational? How is pre-reflectivity to implement in cognitive-architecture? Does phenomenal consciousness have a priority over other mental states and actions? []
