COGS 11.01 Philosophy and Cognitive Science

What is the mind and how can we model it? This course will cover the classical foundations of cognitive science, and some of the more recent developments in the field.  The course is designed to introduce students to central debates and arguments in the philosophy of cognitive science.  We will study philosophical views of the relationship between the mind and the physical world, the computational theory of the mind and its implications, connectionism, theories of embodiment, dynamical systems, and recent statistical approaches to cognition. Open to all.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
