COGS 312 - Mind Reading: The Cognitive Science Book Club

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
The goal of this course is to explore interests and issues from the field of Cognitive Science that go beyond the Cognitive Science curriculum. These include methodological and theoretical issues as well as empirical work, narrative, and more. The course is book-driven and discussion-intense. Think of it as a Cognitive Science book club. We read books, lots of them, and talk about them. Past topics have included: free will, consciousness, embodiment, first person subjective experience, neuroscientific methods, the anthropological stance, artificial intelligence, origins of morality, story, and theory of mind. Books and topics change each year. Gwen Broude.

Prerequisite: any 200-level course in Cognitive Science and permission of the instructor.

One 2-hour period.
