The Virtues of Attention workshop investigates the role of attention in ethics, agency, and mind. The project is based methodologically in the emerging field of cosmopolitan philosophy, in which insight into philosophical questions is derived by careful investigation of ideas from a plurality of distinct cultural locations. As the premier of a three-part series that will include subsequent workshops in Shanghai and New York, the Virtues of Attention workshop in Abu Dhabi brings philosophy of the Islamic World into conversation with global philosophical and empirical perspectives on attention.
