This year's workshop will concentrate on the topic of causation. Our main 
speakers are Carl Craver (Washington University) and Stuart Glennan (Butler 
University).


 

Some of the questions discussed during the 2-day event (May 23-24) include:

Does nature have a causal structure?

What are the arguments for causal realism?

Does knowing nature amount to knowing its causal structure?

How is the causal structure constraining our knowledge representations?

Is there a space for pluralism with regards to causal structures?

How do we select features of the causal structure that are explanatorily 
salient?

 

Presentations on other closely related topics are also welcome.

 

We cordially invite submissions for the in-person workshop that will take 
place in the Academic Conference Center (http://www.akc-avcr.cz
(http://www.akc-avcr.cz/)) in downtown Prague. Please, send your 300-word 
abstracts by March 31st and any other workshop related inquiries to emw at flu.

within 10 days from the submission deadline. More updates are to be found at
