GRAT-workshop for PhD students

On Wednesday September 14, the Centre for Philosophical Psychology will host the GRAT-workshop: a graduate workshop during which PhD students of the Center for Logic and Philosophy of Science in Ghent, the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics in Rotterdam, the University of Antwerp’s Centre for Philosophical Psychology, and the Tilburg Center for Logic, Ethics and Philosophy of Science, will have the opportunity to present their work.

The workshop will consist of six presentations lasting 1 hour: 30 minutes for the actual presentation, 10 minutes during which a Post-doc, who has read the paper in advance, will give comments, followed by a short response from the PhD student, and Q&A for the remainder.

The workshop will be held in the annex. Further details about the program will be provided as soon as possible.

Attendance is free, but do contact Raoul Gervais ( if you plan to join.
