Embodied Mind/Phenomenology Reading Group

The Embodied Mind/Phenomenology Reading Group (EMPRG) is open to all students and staff. The topics and readings we cover will be decided by the group. The aim of the group is to look at readings that discuss the
embodied mind and/or phenomenology in order to see how the two areas can complement each other. We meet on Thursdays in Term Time at 4pm in PO 005 in 48/49 Old Elvet starting 20th October 2016 (See schedule below for list of dates when we meet). Further discussion may take place in a café or pub after the meeting. Each meeting will be based on an article or chapter that everyone should be able to access with a volunteer giving a brief introduction to the reading before open discussion. The EMPRG will meet in Michaelmas, Epiphany and Easter Term.
