The Workshop

17-19 August 202o
Ouro Preto, Brazil

The Mind Brazil Workshop is a regular biannual international event in philosophy of mind. Each edition pays homage to an outstanding international keynote speaker who is invited to discuss her or his work with a handful of distinguished international debaters and a selected group of Brazilian researchers. The event is designed to promote in depth and high quality philosophical debate concerning different aspects of the work of the invited keynote speaker.

At its second edition, Mind Brazil is proud to announce the North-American philosopher Joseph Levine as its keynote speaker. Together with a selected group of international and Brazilian peers, Prof. Levine will discuss his worldwide known philosophical work, including issues such as the explanatory gap, the challenges of materialism, modality and consciousness.

The event is hosted by the Philosophy Graduate Program at the Federal University of São João del-Rei (PPGFIL-UFSJ) and the Philosophy Graduate Program at the Federal University of Ouro Preto (POSDEFIL-UFOP).
