New summer course on Problems of the Self - CEU (deadline 15/02/2012)
Central European University's summer school (http://summer.ceu.hu/self-2012) invites applications from graduate students, junior faculty and researchers from all over the world.
The course aims to present the state of the art in research on the self from philosophy, psychology, cognitive neuroscience, sociology, and
cognitive anthropology. Themes revolve around the nature of the self, as revealed through self-consciousness, body perception, action and joint
action, and its embedding in society and culture. Historical and developmental perspectives provide other angles on the self. The course
presents a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary discussion on the self from multiple perspectives. It is directed at advanced graduate
students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty working in philosophy, psychology, cognitive neuroscience and cognate disciplines.
