The concepts of mind, language and world are fundamental to understand the relations of representation that are given between the subjects and the social and natural world where their forms of life develop. The goal of this thematic panel is to give content to the contemporary reflection concerning the mind and the language, not only to understand the possible relations of representation that the subject could have with itself (self-knowledge), but also, the relations of representation that the subject could establish with his social and natural environment (knowledge); all of them mediated by language.
Therefore, for this panel we are looking for contributions belonging principally to the area of the Philosophy of Mind and to the area of the Philosophy of Language. On the one hand, we think that, to give content to the idea of subject, it is fundamental to have some answers to the problems that the Philosophy of Mind traditionally studies: What is the mind? What does personal identity consist in? What is the conscience? What does self-knowledge consist in?
On the other hand, to give content to the idea of representation is fundamental to consider some of the fundamental problems of the Philosophy of the Language: what does the meaning consists in? On what does it depend? Is the representation of the world the only function of the language? Which are the relations between semantics and pragmatics?
