The Mind Project: Intersections of Philosophy, Human Science, & Humanities in the Journal Mind, 1876-1920

an interdisciplinary symposium at Virginia Tech Dec 2005

Organized by the Department of Science and Technology in Society [STS] at Virginia Tech, in association with other units including Philosophy, this conference will investigate the development of the human sciences around the turn of the 20th Century — a time in which few of the divisions we now take for granted existed between the humanistic and scientific cultures.

Under its first two editors (1876 to 1920), Mind served as a clearinghouse for a wide range of developments in philosophy, psychology, physiology, humanities, and human science leaving a record of scholarship that has been largely unexamined as a unified endeavor.
