About

The Joint Session[aristoteliansociety.us1.list-manage.com] is a three-day conference in philosophy that is held annually during the summer by the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association. It has taken place at nearly every major university across the United Kingdom and in Ireland. Since 1910, the Joint Session has grown to become the largest gathering of philosophers in the country, attracting prestigious UK and international speakers working in a broad range of philosophical areas. Inaugurated by the incoming President of the Mind Association, the Joint Session includes symposia, open and postgraduate sessions, and a range of satellite conferences.

The 90th Joint Session of the Aristotelian Society and the Mind Association will be held at Cardiff University[aristoteliansociety.us1.list-manage.com] from 8 to 10 July 2016.

This year’s local organiser is Nicholas Shackel[aristoteliansociety.us1.list-manage.com], and the official Cardiff website can be found here[aristoteliansociety.us1.list-manage1.com].

Each Open Session talk lasts up to 20 minutes and is followed by an additional 10 minutes for discussion. We will be running four strands in the Open Session that focus on research interests of Cardiff staff: Normativity and Rationality; Post-Kantian Philosophy; Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science; Moral Psychology.
