New Directions in the Study of the Mind is a new research project at the Faculty of Philosophy in Cambridge, supported by the John Templeton Foundation. The aim of this project is to investigate questions about intentionality and consciousness from a non-physicalist, non-reductive perspective. More details about the intellectual and historical background, as well as the research questions of the project, may be found here.

The project will last for two years, from July 2015 to July 2017. There will be a weekly seminar in Cambridge running for two academic years, a number of workshops, and a major conference, among other activities.

In addition, we have funded a number of research projects, carried out by both philosophers and scientists, that take non-physicalist and non-reductionist approaches to the study of the mind. You can find details of our funded projects here.
