PMS WIPS: Philosophy and/of Mind (and/or) Science Works In Progress Sessions
PMS WIPS is an online forum for the discussion of works in progress in the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, and related areas.
Submissions for PMS WIPS will be reviewed by co-editors Brian Keeley (Pitzer College), Pete Mandik (William Paterson University), and Dan Weiskopf (University of South Florida). Accepted contributions and discussion forums will be hosted on Pete Mandik’s blog, Brain Hammer. Accepted contributions will remain on the blog for only six months (but may be removed earlier at the contributor’s request) to ease any worries contributors might have regarding prior publication of works to be sent later to the journals.
We aim to post accepted contributions roughly twice a month. Past contributors have included Paula Droege, Anthony Jack, Joshua Knobe, Uriah Kriegel, Nicholas Maxwell, Gualtiero Piccinini, Jesse Prinz, Philip Robbins, Andreas Roepstorff, Eric Schwitzgebel, Nick Treanor, and Tad Zawidzki.
