9:00-10:00am: Philosophy Talk: What Is Religious Belief?  Neil Van Leeuwen Ph.D., Philosophy Oxford Graduate Studies:, Stanford University, 2007B.A., Classical Studies, University of Pennsylvania, 2000SpecializationsPhilosophy of Mind and Psychology, Cognitive Science Associate FacultyNeuroscience Institute: Neil Van Leeuwen is an empirically-oriented philosopher of mind. He did his graduate work at Oxford University, where he studied classics, and at Stanford University, where he studied philosophy. Prior to his appointment at Georgia State, he held postdoctoral fellowships at Rutgers University and Tufts University. He has also taught at the University of Johannesburg, where he was a Senior Fellow. For the academic year 2015-2016, he held a Marie Curie Fellowship from the European Commission and was in residence at the University of Antwerp's Centre for Philosophical Psychology. Neil’s research focuses the question of what belief is. His approach involves contrasting belief with imagining and other cognitive attitudes. Accordingly, he also focuses on several topics having to do with imagination, like pretend play, mental imagery, the role of imagination in guiding action generally. Neil’s interest in belief and other cognitive attitudes also manifests itself in research on related topics like self-deception and religious credence (and how religious credence differs from factual belief).

Ancestors on both sides of her family were nomads. They traveled the East African desert in search of grazing land for their livestock and, the most precious resource of all, water. It only took a few years for her beloved country of Somalia to be changed forever by a civil war that drastically altered the tradition of storytelling. However, Salh’s grandmother imbued her with resilience, courage, a love of poetry, storytelling and, above all, an appreciation of the beauty of the Somali culture. Here we explore with Shugri Said Salh her journey from the deserts of East Africa to the green pastures of Northern California. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
