Campbell Conference Sept 10-11

Lehigh University hosted a conference to honor the memory and explore the ideas of one of the most illustrious members of its community. Don Campbell (1916-1996) combined an extraordinary intellect with a wonderful personality. His work exerted a major influence on a wide range of fields, with an integrating theme of questions concerning how we can know and learn about our world. We celebrated his life and legacy with talks from former students, friends, and colleagues. Gordon Bearn (Lehigh), Mark Bickhard (Lehigh), Marilynn Brewer (University of New South Wales), David Hamilton (Uiniversity of California at Santa Barbara), Cecilia Heyes (Oxford University), Alex Levine (University of Southern Florida), and William Wimsatt University of Chicago) were the main speakers. The conference was organized by Mark Bickhard and was sponsored by the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Psychology, the Department of Religion Studies, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology, the Cognitive Science Program, and the Institute for Interactionist Studies.
