— PSYC 232 (3)
Explore the interdisciplinary field of cognitive science. We will examine common themes and topics (e.g., mind representation, and computation, the mind-body problem, consciousness, and machine thinking) that are investigated by the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, computer science, linguistics, and neuroscience. As such, its emphasis is on broad coverage of important concepts, rather than detailed analysis of any single area. No prior knowledge or experience with any of the subfields is assumed or necessary. Ideally, this course will lead students to understand the commonalities, as well as the differences, among the various approaches to cognitive science.
