The New Directions in the Study of the Mind Project welcomes proposals for philosophical and scientific approaches to the study of the mind which do not make the physicalist and reductionist assumptions familiar in these disciplines.
The current request for proposals is for the academic year 2016-17.
Proposals can be for funding that supports various research needs: a workshop or a conference; a period of leave to work on a piece of work under the general heading of the project; a research visit to Cambridge to spend time in discussion with the project members; help with bringing a project to publication; and any other reasonable request for support (e.g. the purchase of books or other materials) for research initiatives which fall under the general project heading. Funding available for each proposal is unlikely to exceed £10,000.
Letters of intent in the current call should be received by 31 July 2016.
Submissions should be made via our EasyChair portal.
