This workshop aims to gather researchers in Enaction and Ecological Psychology in order to evaluate which are the complementarities, tensions, and overlaps between these two approaches.
The topics of the workshop will be divided in three main sections:
- Methodological and scientific ontology: Ecological information, sensorimotor contingencies, and affordances.
- Epistemic issues: Ecological meaning, phenomenology, and sense-making.
- The social world within the enactive and the ecological approaches.
City: Donostia-San Sebastián (Spain).
Date: 9 & 10 July, 2019.
Venue: Ignacio María Barriola Building ( Elhuyar Square, 1), University of the Basque Country.
