The NCH Mind and Brain Conference

March 25, 2016 - March 26, 2016

On March 25 and 26, 2016, New College of the Humanities (NCH) will host the NCH Mind and Brain Conference. With this two-day event, we aim to bring together researchers at all levels and across disciplines, from around the UK and beyond, working on issues in the philosophy of psychology and cognitive science.

Our two keynote speakers, Daniel Dennett and Nicholas Humphrey, are both winners of the Mind and Brain Prize (2011 and 2015 respectively), and have written on subjects ranging from the nature of consciousness to the social function of intellect, and the evolution of free will. The conference  will also feature talks from a number of speakers competitively selected on the basis of a call for papers aimed at themes related to our keynote speakers’ work.

Space on the programme will be reserved for early career researchers and student speakers (one undergraduate, two or more graduate). The latter will have the opportunity to gain feedback on their work not only through discussion with the audience but also through specifically appointed commentators drawn from the NCH faculty.

Please address queries and correspondence to the conference organisers Dr Brian Ball, Mr Fintan Nagle, and Dr Ioannis Votsis at

The conference organisers gratefully acknowledge the support of the Aristotelian Society.
