August 23 - 27 2021 | Lorentz Workshop
This Workshop will look at the role of luck and accident in different forms of cognition from an externalist and enactivist perspective.
We want to discuss how can we go from ignorance to insight, looking at which processes, events, and actions foster this cognitive change.
Time & Location
From 10am August 23
to 5pm August 27
Teams Platform | Lorentz Center, Leiden
About the Workshop
‘Enacting Chance’ is a Lorentz week-long workshop, devoted to exploring the implications and connections between philosophical, psychological, and cognitive aspects of discovering, exploiting, and generating chance.
Key topics for discussion will be ignorance-based reasoning, creativity, insight problem-solving, serendipity, intuition, and the enactive perspective on cognition.
In addition to the intensive week of the workshop, events will commence during the summer and interactive materials will be made available for asynchronous participation. While we are assuming that the event will likely be fully online, we are taking opportunities for blended participation and enacting chance wherever possible in the program.
