Science and religion dialogue in Austin

April 9, 2015


I’m in Austin, Texas, to give a talk in a workshop organised by Cristine Legare – Breaking New Ground in the Science-Religion Dialogue Workshop. Looking forward to it. I have written a draft version of some the things I plan to say during the presentation: Philosophers have a very particular set of skills. Skills they […]

The future of CSR in Brno

March 5, 2012


Returning from another visit to LEVYNA in Brno. As per always, it has been a very useful trip, with a lot of progress on setting up the empirical research that I am going to be doing with the people there. A number of the talks at the meeting were also very worthwhile, helping me to […]

Cognition on Boston Common

July 24, 2011


It’s a warm Sunday afternoon and the park is full of people enjoying themselves. Nearby, some people are practicing what appears to be a play of some sort, and a couple of women are taking turns to play the ukulele. A tower clock rings the hour. It’s three pm. It all feels very different to […]

Across America

April 21, 2011


Trying to give three talks in four days in three different time zones is somewhat tiring. As I have found. For a week in March I went on a mad dash across the US to give talks in Arizona, Georgia and Alabama. The trip was made possible thanks to an invitation from the Chance, Purpose […]

In Ghent

March 22, 2011


Last week I was at the University of Ghent in Belgium. The main reason for my visit was that I was on the doctoral committee for Maarten Boudry but I also took the opportunity to give a talk to some of the people in the philosophy department there. Given that the defence is now over, […]

Abstract for Alabama talk

January 5, 2011


This talk is a run through the argument I plan to write up for a volume edited by Massimo Pigliucci and Maarten Boudry that’s in the works with Chicago University Press. For God and Country, not necessarily for Truth: The noncognitive function of superempirical beliefs Religions present a challenge to understanding as natural, cultural and […]

For a small fee in America

January 4, 2011


It looks like I will be going to the US in March this year to give three talks in one week, with a very short stop in New York on the end. I had wanted to go to a couple of other places but the scheduling ended up being rather tight, making it impossible to […]

Secularisation in Brno

December 26, 2010


My usual after-conference report has been somewhat delayed by a little thing called Christmas. The turkey, cake and other comestibles are now where they should be, however: So there is a chance to write a few words about the meeting in Brno. The conference’s title was almost as long as the conference itself – Twenty […]
