This year's Interactivist Summer Institute celebrates Mark Bickhard's 75th birthday by honoring his contributions to philosophy, cognitive science, and the psychology of the whole person.
The conference will take place over three days, each with a different theme and format.
Day 1 will consist of three panels, each with Mark and three other speakers.
The format will proceed as follows:
1) Key papers by each panel speaker is available below.
2) Shortly before the conference, panelist talks (~30-45 min) will be posted on this website.
3) On the day of, panelists each will give a ~10 min summary of the arguments from their pre-recorded talks. Next, the panelists will have 30 minutes for open discussion, followed by 20 minutes of audience questions.
For Day 2, we have invited some of Mark's long-time collaborators and intellectual cousins to speak and reflect on both the history and cutting edge of interactivism and its extensions.
We have invited a variety of relative newcomers and associates to show us what the future of interactivism may look like.
