Fundamental Problems of Philosophy and Science


    A JOINT session of the Aristotelian Society, the British Psychological Society, and the Mind Association was held in London on July 5–8. The aim of this session, which has now been held for several years, is to endeavour to bring together the actual workers in mental and neurological science and those engaged in purely philosophical research for the discussion of fundamental problems. The subjects discussed included problems of mathematics and physics, of physiology and biology, of practical psychology, and of pure metaphysics.
