Susanna Siegel, Edgar Pierce Professor of Philosophy at Harvard, will give the Royce Lectures at Brown University on October 1-3, 2018. The title of the three lectures Professor Siegel will deliver each address the question, "Does Perception Come in Degrees?," with each lecture taking up a different approach to this topic: Epistemology (October 1); Phenomenology (October 2); and Cognitive Science (October 3). The times and locations for the three lectures are available on the Brown University Philosophy Department web page.

As noted by the American Philosophical Association,

The Josiah Royce Lectureship on the philosophy of mind was established in the late 1970s through a generous bequest of Mabel Lisle Ducasse and Curt John Ducasse to Brown University. According to the terms of the bequest, the lectureship was established "to bring about ... effective contributions to progress in the Philosophy of Mind, in the form of substantial works by philosophers of high standing who happen to be specially interested in that particular branch of philosophy."

The Royce Lectures occur every four years and are expected to result in a monograph on the subject of the lectures. A list of past Royce Lecturers can be found here.
