BRAK (Brno Analytic Circle), in cooperation with the Department of Philosophy and Faculty of Arts at Masaryk University, invites you to conference on cognition and lying CaL2019.
CaL2019 follows the previous conference CaL2017 (Cognition and Language) in its effort to show how cognitive science can endorse traditional philosophical topics. This time, the topic at hand is lying and deception – ubiquitous phenomenon, interesting not only in its moral controversy but also in its persistent presence in our everyday lives. CaL2019 tries to present a variety of possible approaches to this topic, from philosophical to psychological and neuroscientific.

Key-note speaker

We are happy to announce that the keynote speaker for our conference is Prof. James Edwin Mahon.

James E. Mahon is Dean of Arts & Humanities at the City University of New York, Lehman College. His professional interest lies in the philosophy of lying and deception, but he is also an expert in areas of applied ethics, metaethics and normative ethics, especially Kant and Mill.

  • You can attend Keynote’s talk on 28.11.2019 16:30 – 17:30 at Assembly hall C33 (Aula), FF MU, building C, 3rd floor, Arne Nováka 1, Brno
