Perceptual Experience and Empirical Reason 2021

December 3, 2021 (All day) to December 5, 2021 (All day)

Perception 2021, hosted by the Philosophy Department December 3-5, is a conference on the role of experience in cognition.

How does perception guide us to knowledge of a mind-independent reality? If perceptual experience is the basis of empirical reasoning, how are we to understand the rational contribution of such experiences? The aim of the conference is to promote a conversation between proponents of different conceptions of experience and of its role in cognition. Participants will be expected to read ahead the principal contributions, which will be made available by late October. Conference sessions will be devoted mostly to discussion. Registration is free but required.
