Association of Mexican Philosophers Conference April 24-26 at Columbia

8th Annual Conference of the American Association of Mexican Philosophers will take place at Columbia this spring (April 24-26). The Association is mainly a group of Mexican philosophers based in the United States. We hold a conference every year to discuss our work and get to know each other better, as well as the philosophical community of the hosting institution. The topics of the talks reflect the interests of each year’s presenters, and this year they go from the philosophy of mind & language, to the philosophy of physics, metaphysics, and metaethics.

CUNY PhD Students Adriana Renero and Javier Gómez-Lavín will present.
