The CEU Department  of Philosophy cordially invites you to the following
event: 
 
PETAF - Subjectivity Workshop  21-23 September 2011, Budapest
The FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network PETAF is the first
research and training network exclusively in philosophy ever to be
financed by the European Commission. It aims to serve as a European
research and training platform for joint philosophical research on
perspectival thought, its linguistic expression and its consequences for
our conception of objective, mind-independent reality. PETAF’s research
programme, which runs for four years, addresses both general issues in
metaphysics and in logic and semantics and specific issues in more
specialised areas in which perspective-bound cognition plays a pivotal
role, i.e. the philosophy of space and time, the philosophy of alethic
and epistemic modality, the philosophy of subjectivity and
consciousness, and the philosophy of norms and value.
