The Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy is inviting you to a talk by Emiliano Loria. The title of the talk is “Teleological reasoning in infancy”.
See the invitation here.
Abstract of the talk:
I will focus on the principle of efficiency, that is assumed innate in the infants’ mind according to the “naive theory of rational choice”, proposed by G. Csibra and G. Gergely. I will discuss the Woodward Paradigm and the further experimental findings conducted by Y. Lou and R. Baillargeon, and in particular by V. Southgate, who endorses the teleological stance described by Csibra and Gergely. The underlying topic is to establish if mindreading abilities are involved in the comprehension of oriented-goal actions shown very early by infants. I will show the hot debate in cognitive science about this issue and in conclusion the possible connections to the developmental psychopathology.
Emiliano Loria is a PhD Student at Consortium FINO, University of Turin and University of Genoa (Italy).
The event will take place on 25.4.2017. at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, room 106, at 14:15.

The members of the Croatian Society for Analytic Philosophy want to express their solidarity with the Central European University and express their concern regarding Bill T/14686 amending Act CCIV of 2011 on national higher education accepted by the Hungarian Parliament on April 4, 2017. The Bill renders CEU’s continued operations in Budapest virtually impossible and strikes a severe blow against the academic freedom that enables all universities, including those in Hungary, to flourish.
