Naturalism, the First – Person Perspective and the Embodied Mind

The papers collected in this issue of Phenomenology and Mind were presented at the Spring School on “Naturalism, First-Person Perspective and the Embodied Mind” that was held at San Raffaele University, Milan in June 2014. As in the tradition of these philosophical schools, the meeting centred on the work of an outstanding living philosopher, namely, on Lynne Rudder Baker’s philosophical views, and particularly on her recent book on Naturalism and the First-Person Perspective.
Beside the keynote speaker, there were seven invited speakers from four different countries, and ten contributed papers by scholars from five different countries, that were selected in a double-blind review process from a set of twenty-eight abstracts. The contributed papers subsequently underwent a double-blind review process when submitted in their full version.
