      The respective parts of the Philosophy Departments at Bochum
      (Germany), Lausanne (Switzerland) and Tilburg (The
      Netherlands) coordinate their graduate education in
      philosophy of language, mind and science. In this context,
      week-long meetings are organized which bring together
      students from all three locations as well as interested
      graduate students from other universities. Each meeting
      focuses on one main topic, which is covered in extended
      tutorials by invited speakers. Additionally, students are
      invited to present and discuss their own work. The graduate
      school is kindly sponsored by the DAAD within the
      Bi-national Graduate Program.
      This year’s Tilburg week is embedded in the series of
      biannual René Descartes Lectures, which will this year be
      delivered by Professor Ian Hacking (Toronto/Paris). See
      There will also be two mini-tutorials, held by James Conant
      (Chicago) and Martin Kusch (Vienna), on aspects of Professor
      Hacking’s work.
      This year’s Lausanne week focuses on reductionism in
      philosophy of mind and neuroscience. The main lecturer is
      John Bickle. Further invited speakers are Mauro Dorato,
      Michael Heidelberger, Max Kistler, Albert Newen, Michael
      Pauen, and Joëlle Proust.
