The progress in mind sciences (e.g. neuroscience, psychiatry and psychology) began to speed up in the last decades of the twentieth century. It has also facilitated the appearance of new discourses in humanity disciplines. Among them, the most obvious includes neurolaw, neuroethics, neurophilosophy, neuroeconomics, etc. Furthermore, sociocultural approach to mind sciences emphasizes the exploration of the mutual embededness and constitution of mind, brain and societal values (or, to put it more broadly, culture). Sociocultural patterns as revealed in ideas, values, practices and products can shape people’s mind and behavior. On the other hand, as people collectively engage in their social and environmental contexts, they are also actively making meanings and through their actions building the new meanings into their contexts. Hence, mind sciences, humanity and culture needs to be considered together.

In the conference, scholars of law, ethics, and philosophy, will present their papers addressing issues of mind sciences and humanity, of which the implications in or mutual embeddedness with culture will be explored. At a meta‐level, the surging interests in mind sciences and humanity might itself a cultural phenomenon, a term that is worthy of its own meticulous analysis. Through the conference, we hope the presenters can contribute collectively to the trans‐disciplinary scholarship.
