2013 Whitehead Psychology Nexus Workshop

The _Whitehead Psychology Nexus_ is organizing next April 3-5 its 2013 meeting in Fontarèches (near Avignon, France) : Process Approaches to Consciousness in Psychology and Philosophy of Mind. Twenty research seminars will be devoted to some aspects of the potential synergies existing between Whiteheadian process thought and the various facets of the contemporary psychological field.

Fontarèches is a little town near Nîmes (30 mins), Arles (40 mins) and Aix-en-Provence (a little over an hour), that can be easily reached with Ryanair (Nîmes airport) or the TGV [high speed train] (Avignon, 40 mins). Participants will be picked upon arrival and driven for their departure.
