Kinds of Minds seminar cycle

The Kinds of Minds seminar cycle aims at showcasing and examining some of the various and multiple forms of mentality existing in nature. The cycle  features a diverse range of talks by international experts, which will explore various forms of mentality - ranging from the "minimal" cognitive activities of non-neuronal organisms to human phenomenology. Seminars are held online and no registration is required for attendance.
