On December 8, an international workshop will be held that brings together philosophers to discuss topics related to the mind. The special feature of the workshop is its approach, namely, topics in the philosophy of mind are approached from a historical perspective. In addition to the Tartu philosophers, three philosophers from Hungary will participate in the event. Paul S. MacDonald will speak via Zoom. He is the author of several books on the history of the mind.
