First Posted: January 15, 2008Richard Wollheim, former Grote Professor of Philosophy of Mind and Logic at University College, London and Mills Professor of Intellectual and Moral Philosophy at University of California, Berkeley, was one of the most original and pre-eminent philosophers of mind and aesthetics of the late 20th century, whose work reached beyond philosophy to engage psychoanalysts and art historians as well. Yet his thought has received comparatively little comment and discussion. This conference seeks to undo some of that neglect. Invited speakers: Anthony Price James Hopkins Derek Matravers The conference will comprise two symposia, one on psychoanalysis, the other on aesthetics, individual papers, and a conference address. Papers We invite papers on any aspect of Wollheim’s philosophy of mind, particularly in relation to psychoanalysis, aesthetics and theories of value. Papers should be presentable in 30-40 minutes. Papers will be considered for publication in a volume of the conference proceedings (publisher TBC). Please send a detailed abstract of 500-1000 words (or a full paper) by March 15, 2008 to: Michael Lacewing Heythrop College Kensington Square London W8 5HQ Or firstname.lastname@example.org. Speakers’ travel expenses within the UK will be reimbursed. Registration For registration and enquiries, please contact email@example.com.
