We are very pleased to announce that Paolo Bonardi just joined the Valencia Philosophy Lab as a Maria Zambrano postdoctoral researcher. Welcome, Paolo!

The Spanish Ministry for Science and Innovation (Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación) just published the call for the Juan de la Cierva-formación postdoctoral fellowship. This fellowship is addressed to early stage researchers who were awarded their PhD between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2021. The period of application will begin on 20 January 2022 and will end on 3 February 2022. Applications by eligible candidates must be included in a matching application to be submitted by a member of a department within Spain, willing to incorporate the successful applicant. The official call can be found here


The Valencia Philosophy Lab (https://vlclab.blogs.uv.es) invites researchers working in areas within the remit of the group to send their expression of interest, together with their CV and a very brief description of their projected research, to the group’s coordinator, Marc Artiga (marc.artiga@uv.es), to solicit support before 12 January 2022.

The reading group “Putnam on Realism, Mind and World” will start this Tuesday. It will be held biweekly on Tuesdays afternoon. We will be reading the first part of Putnam’s the Threefold Chord and different texts where Putnam and McDowell contrast their views on mind, world, and meaning. If you are interested in attending, please get in touch with jordi.valor@uv.es

 The new reading group on Rationality and Intersubjectivity will kick off on Wednesday 17 from 15:00 to 16:30. The RG will run mostly biweekly and there will be three interconnected clusters of topics: Action explanation, Sense/concept individuation and Mental Files. If you are interested in attending, please get in touch with <vmverdejo@gmail.com>.
