The Human Mind Project highlights the contribution of the arts and humanities to the study of human nature, and the importance of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to understanding the mind, integrating science and the humanities.

After its launch in December 2013, the first public event of the Human Mind Project addresses the meaning of mind – how the term is used by philosophers, and the extent to which philosophical ideas about the nature, mechanism and function of the mind relate to the way that the word is used by neuroscientists and cognitive scientists. This one-day intensive workshop brings together leading philosophers and scientists to discuss what they see to be the key questions facing the study of the mind. The overarching goal is to represent a range of philosophical opinion, from those who embrace naturalistic approaches to the mind to those who are sceptical, as well as to explore potentially fruitful topics for interdisciplinary research.
