Second Conference of the European Society for Early Modern Philosophy (ESEMP)

27.01.2010
Mind in Nature
15-17 February 2010, Humboldt-University of Berlin

When early modern thinkers began to oppose the metaphysical framework of aristotelian hylomorphism and maintained that natural things are to be explained in purely mechanistical terms, explaining mind became problematic:

How do mind and its various activities (as perception, imagination, memory, thinking etc.) relate to "natural processes"? Are they identical? Or radically different? In which categories are they to be described? And how can an explanation of mind be integrated into a complete account of nature?

In the announced conference such problems are discussed in its historical context and related to contemporary debates of the philosophy of mind by leading scholars from all over Europe and the U.S.

Dominik Perler (Berlin)
Johannes Haag (Potsdam)

Im Focus: Nonstop Tranport of Cargo in Nanomachines

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.

Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
