Class Details

In the last decade the science of the mind has continued to draw on its 20th century history as well as expand its methodological repertoire. In this seminar we will investigate some of the current trends in mind and cognition. We will attend both to the specific empirical details as well as the conceptual foundations of cognitive science. In particular, we will focus on the concept of mental representation, which is the core and defining theoretical posit in the field of cognitive sciences. We will discuss both the philosophical foundations of this concept, as well as how it is utilized in the current empirical literature in this field.
