Winter is winding down and I am prepping for my Southern Fried Spring Phenomenology tour.
1st stop is the Southern Society for Philosophy and Psychology March 22-24 in Savannah Georgia, where I will be commenting on Benji Kozuch’s paper (on lesions to the prefrontal lobes and the implications for higher-order theories), as well as giving a talk in an invited symposium “Explaining Consciousness” (with Josh Weisberg and Kenneth Williford); “Phenomenal Consciousness Ain’t in the (Back of the) Head”. I am putting the final touches on the presentation and hope to record a practice run of it sometime this week (look for it on my YouTube channel). This conference should be a lot of fun since it seems like I know everyone on the program! Kudos to Pete Mandik for assembling such a great group of people!
2nd stop back to New York for Funkomenological Overflow at the Local 269 Tuesday April 3rd. This free event in lower Manhattan features the music of the Space Clamps, the return of Quiet Karate Reflex, and the William James Trio…all three of these groups feature me on the drums! We have been rehearsing a lot and each group has a unique sound and set list…where else can you find jazz/funk, 8bit experimental breakbeats, and funk/awesome rock played by philosophers, neuroscientists, and psychologists?
3rd stop is back to the south for the Tenth Biennial Towards a Science of Consciousness conference in Tucson (ok, ok, so that’s a different south, but c’mon!). I will be giving a talk in the Dualism and Modal Arguments concurrent session which will be a ‘all-things-considered’ statement of my 2D argument against Non-Materialism. I haven’t been to Tucson since 2008 so I am really looking forward to it!
Hope to see you on the road!
