Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you to a research collaboration event co-organised by 
the Naturalism, Modernity, and Civilization International Research Network 
(NMCIRN) and the University of Wollongong: “Liberal Naturalism and 
Non-Scientific Explanations.”

In contemporary Anglo-American discourse about philosophical naturalism, 
liberal naturalism has been articulated as a novel position which makes room 
for phenomena that are neither ‘scientific’ nor ‘supernatural’. However, to 
date, little attention has been given to the form non-scientific explanations 
take. Our Zoom workshop’s aim is to help create new internationally-reaching 
conversations about the nature of non-scientific explanations involving persons 
at the person-level of ordinary language. The event will, therefore, kick-start 
a new avenue of scholarly research and debate on liberal naturalism.

The Zoom workshop is free of charge. However, we kindly ask colleagues 
interested in participating to register:

The Zoom link is available there.
