Material Evidence and Cognitive Evolution:

There is growing interest in developing interdisciplinary collaborations between philosophy and archaeology. On one hand, philosophers of science are becoming increasingly interested in the unique nature of the archaeological method, which raises important questions concerning evidence, repeatability and inference. On the other hand, a growing movement in archaeology sees the archaeological record as providing clues to the evolution of cognition, and have appealed to resources in the philosophy of biology, mind and cognitive science in their theorising. This workshop brings together a group of philosophers and archaeologists who have intersecting interests in the nature of archaeological evidence and  the evolution of cognition.

Speakers: Kim Sterelny (ANU), Jo McDonald (UWA), Adrian Currie (Exeter), Lindell Bromham (ANU), Alison Wylie (UBC), Edouard Machery (Pittsburgh), Anton Killin (ANU), Ron Planer (ANU), Marlize Lombard (Johannesberg), Amy Tabrett (USyd), Dietrich Stout (Emory), Ceri Shipton (ANU), Mark Collard (SFU), Ross Pain (ANU).
