Philosophy and Cognitive Science

DescartesOne of our neuroscience faculty (an experimentalist) has mentioned repeatedly what a shame it is that neuroscience students know so little about philosophy. Here’s your chance to hang out with some philosophers and rectify that.

Kevin Lande, an M.A. Philosophy student at Brandeis, writes;

Several members of the Philosophy department and graduate program are forming an interdisciplinary reading group of  professors and graduate students to discuss issues in the overlap of the philosophy of cognitive science with research in cognitive science and neuroscience. This would be an opportunity for people in different areas, with different interests and perspectives, to come together to discuss contemporary research or foundational issues. Meetings may be monthly (or, depending on how it goes, more frequently), and may revolve around a selected reading or, if possible, a guest presentation by a researcher in the Boston area.

There will be an organizational meeting March 11 at 2:00, in the Danielson Room in the Rabb building, rm. 338. Please contact Kevin Lande (kjlande at brandeis dot edu) with questions.
