The II FINO/SIFA Graduate Conference in Mind, Language and Science  “Between natural, social, and artificial kinds” aims at improving the interaction among young scholars and researchers in philosophy, both from Italy and elsewhere, to discuss new trends on the topic of natural, social, and artificial kinds.

To say that a science theorizes about kinds that are natural, instead of social or artificial, is to say that they correspond to elements that reflect the real structure of the world, not merely human actions, interests, and values. These topics are among the most debated in contemporary philosophy as they raise many contentious issues, which involve the nature and semantics of concepts such as species, gender, race, disease, and so on, and also have pivotal implications both for ethics and the various sciences.

There is no registration fee and everybody is welcome.
