Project Abstract/ Summary

The Department of Philosophy is seeking the Committee's support for the first speaker in its 2003-2004 Colloquium Series. We will make application for the remainder of the series in Fall 2003. This series of talks is designed both to support the curricular and scholarly interests of students and faculty in Philosophy and to reach out to interested faculty and students in other disciplines at the University of Maine. Our first speaker, Tim Crane, has been in the Philosophy Department of University College of London since 1990. He is currently Tutor to MA students and Director of the Philosophy Programme in the School of Advanced Study, University of London. Professor Crane has worked mostly in the broad area of Philosophy of Mind, with a focus on physicalism and mental causation, intentionality and the philosophy of perception. He is currently working on the relationship between intentionality and consciousness. We are sure that faculty and students across the campus and community, especially in the departments of psychology and computer science, will find much of interest in Professor Crane's lecture. I.
