The goal of cognitive science — and of this course — is to understand how your mind works. In this class you will be introduced to how philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, computer science, linguistics, and anthropology contribute to and broaden our understanding of cognitive science. This introduction will allow you to appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of cognitive science, the diversity of viewpoints, and areas of consensus and controversy. This course also serves as the introductory course for the interdisciplinary cognitive science minor and counts for social/behavioral inquiry in the core.
