MLAG (Mind, Language, and Action Group) was founded by Prof. Sofia Miguens in 2005, building on the work on analytic philosophy done within GFMC (Gabinete de Filosofia Moderna e Contemporânea, Instituto de Filosofia da Universidade do Porto, founded in 1996 by Prof. Maria José Cantista).
The main goal of MLAG is to carry on research on the nature of mind, the nature of language, and the nature of action. The group works mostly in contemporary philosophy and in the analytic tradition.
The issues central to MLAG’s research programme makes the group’s work seek (i) a cognitive science framework, (ii) a general framework of history of 20th century philosophy, reaching to other traditions in contemporary philosophy (phenomenology, especially).
Sofia Miguens (Porto) and Charles Travis (King’s College London) are currently responsible for MLAG’s research agenda.
