Consciousness and the Will: Celebrating the Work of Brian O’Shaughnessy – conference page

17-19 June 2010 – For over half a century, Brian O’Shaughnessy has been producing groundbreaking work in the philosophy of mind and action. O’Shaughnessy’s The Will (1980) set the agenda for three decades of research on bodily action and bodily awareness, and his Consciousness and the World (2000) is a manifesto for the centrality of notions of self-knowledge and mental agency in an understanding of the phenomenon of consciousness. In the wake of the (2008) publication of the revised edition of O’Shaughnessy’s first classic work on the will this conference brings together several generations of philosophers to celebrate O’Shaughnessy’s contribution to the discipline, in discussion of a range of themes drawn from, and related to, his work.
