Additive vs. Transformative Conceptions of Rationality

A Conference at the University of Patras, 27-29 of June 2018

The conference is part of a series devoted to topics in philosophy of action, mind, perception, and self-consciousness at the intersection of analytic philosophy, German idealism and the phenomenological tradition. Under the leadership of Costas Pagondiotis, from 2014 to 2017 it was sponsored by the Department of Philosophy of the University of Patras with generous financial assistance from a Mellon Foundation Grant held by Professor John McDowell of the University of Pittsburgh. Starting in 2018, it will be funded with the assistance of the Humboldt Project.
