Foundations of Mind conference 2015Foundations of Mind II: A Dialogue of World Views Issue of Cosmos and History

Papers from the 2015 Foundations of Mind II: A Dialogue of World Views conference held at UC Berkeley are now published in Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy in Volume 11, Number 2.

This is the second special edition of Cosmos & History on Foundations of Mind (FOM), which was held at the University of California, Berkeley between August 13th and 15th 2015.

The foundations of mind (FOM) project actively produces solutions to 21st century crises in education and research and resolving ecological and social concerns, through a new approach to mind and society. Foundations of Mind runs an annual conference and an online college, and produces peer-reviewed work in neuroscience, HCI, cognitive science, biology and philosophy that have received the highest accolade of being accepted both to be taught for credit and formally academically sponsored at both Stanford and UC Berkeley.
