Few phenomena so fundamental to our experience of the world are as puzzling as time. Whilst the temporality of experience arouses the curiosity of most inquiring minds, it is of particular interest to psychologists and philosophers. Questions such as how we perceive change, how we understand ourselves as existing through time, and how memory relates to temporal awareness are common to both disciplines – and yet there is little in the way of communication between the two.
This one day workshop brings together philosophers and psychologists to explore how their different perspectives can together illuminate the topic. The aim is to foster a mutually informative environment in which communication between the two fields can lead to new and innovative insights.
