    The Interactivist Summer Institute 2001

    July 23-27, 2001

    Lehigh University, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA


    (This Call for Participation, along with related information, can

    It's happening: research threads in multiple fields scattered across
    the mind-sciences seem to be converging towards a point where the
    classical treatment of representation within the encodingist
    framework is felt as an impasse. A rethinking of the methods,
    concepts, arguments, facts, etc. is needed and, so it seems, is being
    found in the interactivist approach. From research in human
    cognition, motivation, and development, through consciousness,
    sociality, and language, to artificial intelligence, post-behaviorist
    cognitive robotics, and interface design, we are witnessing the
    appearance of projects where the assumptions of interactivism are
    embraced. More often then not, this is in an implicit manner, so that
    at a superficial level those projects (the problems they deal with,
    the methods they use) seem to be incommensurable. However,
    underneath, one can feel their interactivist gist. The time is right
    (and ripe) we felt, to articulate this "irrational" (in Feyerabendian
    sense) pressure for change at a programmatic level, and this is what
    we want to accomplish with the present workshop. The workshop will be
    preceded by a Summer School in Interactivism featuring several
    tutorials which are meant to provide the needed theoretical
    background, based mainly on Mark Bickhard and his collaborators'
    work. The intention is for this Institute to become a traditional
    annual meeting where those sharing the core ideas of interactivism
    will meet and discuss their work, try to reconstruct its historical
    roots, put forward current research in different fields that fits the
    interactivist framework, and define research topics for prospective
    graduate students. People working in philosophy of mind, linguistics,
    social sciences, artificial intelligence, cognitive robotics, and
    other fields related to the sciences of mind are invited to send
    their statement of interest for participation to the organizers (see
    details below).
