  • Research Group

    Mind, Language & Action
  • Seminário de Investigação Interno do MLAG | Verão 2020


    The aim of this seminar-series is the discussion of recent or ongoing work of members of the research group MLAG (Institute of Philosophy, University of Porto). The first intended audience are MLAG members themselves, but we hope the discussions will be of interest to a wider audience so we will keep the sessions open (subject to registration). It is often the case that research lines are pursued unbeknownst of other members of the group, producing results that remain underdiscussed. So we decided to enter a period of self-knowledge. Everyone is invited to join – we will organize the sessions by Zoom so it is irrelevant where you are. We will try to organize sessions around the three main areas of our work: mind, language and action (although some of us are not very confortable with some of those words and would prefer to say that ‘thought’ and not mind is the main topic of our research)


    If you are interested in participating please send an email to ifilosofia@letras.up.pt (Instituto de Filosofia - Isabel Marques) or smiguens@letras.up.pt (Sofia Miguens) and we will send you the link to the sessions.
