conference, philosophy, mind wandering
The final talk was by Helgi Clayton McClure, who showed how work in philosophy can inform experimental research in psychology. He explored the hypothesis that there is something like memories of the future with the use of techniques used in the investigation of mind-wandering. Really awesome stuff.
Overall, the conference was really lovely! People were super friendly, and there was a lot of very lively discussion and helpful suggestions.
