The aim of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussion of the role which

conditioned by Universal Grammar.

The Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN) is based at the Department of
Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas (IFIKK) at the University of
Oslo. It is a Center of Excellence mainly funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

The overarching goal is to understand the normative dimensions of the human mind
in terms that allow us to see them as integrated parts of the natural world.

Our core research topics lie at the interface of philosophy and the empirical
sciences, such as linguistics, cognitive psychology, political science and
economics.
