Naturalism is currently the most vibrantly developing approach to philosophy, with naturalised methodologies being applied across all the philosophical disciplines. While discussions over the appropriateness of naturalist assumptions are ongoing, many philosophers are simply forging ahead with a range of interdisciplinary projects that show how philosophy and various sciences such as biology, psychology and cognitive science can work hand in hand. The workshop aims to further the development of naturalism through focussed, friendly discussion in the relaxed atmosphere of a picturesque historical town.
