CFP: Special Issue on Mind and Paradox – *J. of Experimental and Theoretical AI

Posted: 7 de February de 2012 by Fernando Furtado in Call for Papers

Philosophers, cognitive scientists, and other researchers are invited
to submit papers for the special issue on Mind and Paradox to be
published in the Journal of Experimental and Theoretical AI.  The due
date is July 1, 2012.

The special issue is based on this question: “How are minds related to
paradox, in general, and the known paradoxes, specifically?”  The
gamut is fair game.  Certainly, the mind plays a crucial role in
*recognizing* paradoxes, but what role, if any, does the mind play in
*creating* paradoxes?  Are paradoxes in some sense mind-dependent? Or
are paradoxes objectively real, existing independently of mind?  Is
mind itself paradoxical?  For example, are concepts and
conceptualization paradoxical?  Could consciousness be paradoxical,
perhaps in seeming to be both physical and nonphysical?  The paradoxes
considered can come from anywhere, and needn’t be restricted to logic,
mathematics, or philosophy (e.g., the paradoxes of physics are also
fair game).  Of course, topics and issues not included here may also
be appropriate.

Questions can emailed to Eric Dietrich, Paradox and Mind Editor, at  This is also where the submissions should be
