Organized by the Spanish Analytic Community

The SIUCC (Seminario Interuniversitario de Ciencia Cognitiva) annual conferences are three-day workshops, intended to focus on the contributions of an influential philosopher, which have been organized by the Spanish Analytic Community for the past 20 years, under the auspices of the SEFA (Spanish Society for Analytic Philosophy) since the creation of the society in 1994.

Invited speakers are asked to present three papers, which can be new material or a revision of former work. The seminar intends to trigger discussion and debate through the presentation of a selection of contributions related to any of the philosophical topics of the invited speakers’ work.

Susanna Siegel

Susanna Siegel is Edgar Pierce Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University. She works on topics in the philosophy of mind and epistemology. Her research focuses mainly on perception. It draws on both philosophy and the sciences of the mind. She has written about what kinds of things we can perceive; how our perceptions can be influenced by what we already know, suspect, or fear; and the relationships between perception and culture, memory, knowledge, concepts, and language. She has published two very influential books: The Contents of Visual Experience (2010) and The Rationality of Perception (2017) (OUP). Professor Siegel is also interested in political philosophy.
