In the course of his career, Professor John Haugeland has made profound and lasting contributions to many different areas of philosophy, including the philosophy of language, metaphysics, and epistemology. His three most lasting contributions will arguably prove to be to the following three fields: (1) to the philosophy of mind, above all, to the question of what is most distinctive about human mindedness; (2) to our critical understanding of artificial intelligence, above all, to our understanding of its inherent limitations as a research program for understanding the nature of human intelligence; and (3) to the interpretation of the German existentialist philosopher Martin Heidegger.
“Mind, Meaning, and Understanding: The Philosophy of John Haugeland” will bring together scholars in each of the above mentioned fields in order to discuss the significance of John Haugeland’s work.
