CenSes Workshop: Intentions and Control of Action
Supported by The Danish Council for Independent Research
The notion of intention is central to both philosophical and psychological explanations of human agency. To explain the human ability to rationally control actions, we need to understand the temporal dynamics of practical reasoning and decision making. This workshop aims to shed light on the role of intentions in the control of actions by bringing together recent work in philosophy of action, psychological modelling of attention, experimental investigations of the sense of agency, and neuroscience of goal selection.
