Extended Call for Paper (preliminary)

Cognition and Collective Intentionality
Mental Prerequisites and Attitudes for Collective Intentionality:
Philosophical, Logical, Computational, Neural and Psychological Models

Siena, Certosa di Pontignano (Italy)
13-15 October 2004

The Collective Intentionality Group
(http://www.helsinki.fi/~pylikosk/collint/group.html), the Institute for
Cognitive Science and Technologies of the CNR (http://www.istc.cnr.it) and
the University of Siena  (PhD Program in Cognitive Science -
http://www.unisi.it/ricerca/dip/fil_sc_soc/dot-sc/default.htm) invite paper
proposals for the interdisciplinary conference on Collective Intentionality
2004 (CollInt IV) to be held in Siena, Italy, 13-15 October 2004.

The special focus of this year is: Cognition and Collective Intentionality
"Mental Prerequisites and Attitudes for Collective Intentionality:
Philosophical, Logical, Computational, Neural and Psychological Models".

Philosophers, cognitive and social scientists are encouraged to submit
papers on any aspect of the theme but also in general on the concept and
theory of collective intentionality. The term "collective intentionality"
is understood to refer not only to phenomena such as joint intention and
commitment, mutual belief, we-attitudes, collective acceptance and
agreement, collective responsibility, but it is also taken to cover
collective action, social practices as well as social institutions and
organizations.

Theme
This year special focus is aimed at exploring relationships between
individual mental representations and states and collective intentional
states. Different perspectives and methodologies are encouraged; ranging
from neural to psychological, computational (both AI and Alife-oriented),
philosophical and logical ones (included formal ontology).

Collective Intentionality and Collective joint mental states or activities
exhibit collective intentionality or "aboutness". The contents of those
mental states and activities are supposed to be shared by a group of
people. Typical examples of collective intentionality are presented by
joint intentions and mutual beliefs. People may share collective
intentional states or they may take others' thoughts and actions into
account when acting.

CollIntIV topics and possible questions are (but are not restricted to) the
following:

- Individual cognition and collective intentionality
What are  the mental individual ingredients of acceptance, agreement, joint
commitment? Which are the relationships with individual beliefs, motives,
intentions, commitments, powers, obligations?  What are the motivational or
epistemic prerequisites for joining collective intentional states?

- Social cognition and collective intentionality
Are there necessary specific epistemic rules based for example on empathy,
conformity, imitation, authority, etc.? Should the  members of a joint act
have a  specific  motivational structure, for example: group identity and
the feeling of membership? Or the representation of a collective interest
distinct from the personal egocentric utility? Can a group of animals
exhibit collective intentionality? Is a theory of mind necessary to
attribute intentional attitudes to collective entity? If so, how should it
be  implemented?

- Distributed cognition and collective intentionality
What is the relation between the "extended mind" and the collective
intentionality of groups? How can other minds scaffold the  individual one?
Is the extended mind only in external object and technologies and symbols
or can be extended to social  interactions and relations? Are
collectivities themselves intentional agents?

- Normativity and collective intentionality
What is the relationship between collective intentionality and normativity?
Are entitled expectations, prescriptions, commitments and duties building
blocks of joint intending? Should we necessarily characterise a 'role'
within a joint plan or in a group in deontic terms? Are conventions based
upon collective acceptance and/or collective acceptance built on
conventions? And are conventions just a structure of expectations or do
they contain deontic  constituents? Which are the cognitive and social
prerequisites for prescriptions, permissions, prohibitions?

Part of the conference will be devoted to the crucial issue of the special
conventional nature of institutional acts and functions: the so called
"Counts As" relation. Both issues are relevant:
-  how a collective acceptance is presupposed by the "Counts As" effect;
-  how this is implemented in the mental representations and consequent
behaviours of the participants.

A Panel on the "Counts as" subject will conclude the Conference.
