Description

The goal of this course is to provide an integrated overview of some of the major approaches to understanding the mind and brain, approaches that together constitute contemporary cognitive science. The study of mind and brain raises some of the deepest and most complex issues facing science, and no single discipline can lay claim to privileged status when it comes to making progress. Indeed, much of the recent excitement in the field has come from approaches that draw on the ideas and methods of multiple disciplines. In this course we'll get a taste of some of that excitement.

Topics we will cover include: language, perception, infant cognition, rationality, emotion, and moral decision-making. With each topic, we will examine it at multiple levels: functional, computational, and physical/neural. The aim is to arrive at an overview of the big ideas of cognitive science—the theoretical principles that constitute our current understanding of how our minds work.

Intended Audience:

This is an undergraduate survey course and no particular background is needed.
