PHIL 25 Philosophy of Cognitive Science

What is the mind and how can we model it? Cognitive science offers a distinctive approach to some of the great philosophical questions about the mind. But what does it tell us? This course will cover the classical foundations of cognitive science, and some of the more recent developments in the field. We will study the computational theory of the mind and its implications, connectionism, theories of embodiment, dynamical systems, and recent statistical approaches to cognition. (Not open to students who received credit for PHIL 010/COGS 11.01.)

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.
