Neuro & Philo – Seminars and workshops

Rodin's The Thinker reflexing upon the event planning

On Friday, April 5th, 2019 on the St-Charles campus, participate in a day of seminars and workshop-debates organized by Estelle Nakul for NeuroSchool. Come learn more about the relationship between biology and philosophy through a series of speakers who are tackling both topics in their research!


How can neuroscientific knowledge feed philosophical theses, especially those concerning the philosophy of the mind? How can philosophy help neuroscience to obtain a critical perspective on its own activity and on the knowledge it produces?


With our scientific and philosophical speakers, take advantage of this day to learn how integrating philosophy in your research can improve it!


The day is open and free of charge to all Aix-Marseille University students and research professionals. As places are limited, registrations of NeuroSchool researchers and doctoral students will have priority.

Talks and discussions will be in French.

Possibility of obtaining ECTS credits for PhD students enrolled in the NeuroSchool PhD Program!
