Aims, contents and method of the course

The participants present in the seminar 15-20 pages long papers containing either a chapter, an article draft, or a concept of their master's or doctoral thesis. The papers will be discussed in the seminar. The participants are also expected to write a short comment on each paper, to be submitted in the Moodle ahead of the class. Additionally, each participant is expected to function once as a moderator of the seminar paper presentation of another student.

Given the limited amount of the meetings, doctoral students in the philosophy of science and cognitive sciences (broadly construed) are given a priority in attendance.

The course takes place online as long as the Covid-19 crisis continues.
