Interaktiva och kognitiva system (HCS)

Seminars on

Theoretical Issues In Cognitive Science (TIICS)

Fall 2017

This seminar is open to faculty, graduate students and advanced undergraduate students interested in theoretical issues in Cognitive Science. We primarily read and discuss papers addressing issues in this field, but are also open to presentations and discussions of the participants' own work in this area. All participants are expected to have read the paper to be discussed prior to coming to the seminar (this does not apply to the first seminar this fall).

The seminars are organized by Nils Dahlbäck (IDA) och Fredrik Stjernberg (IKK).

We meet once every second week. During the fall 2017 we will meet on 10:15 – 11:15 Thursdays (on even numbered weeks) in seminar room Allen Newell, E-building (IDA), beginning on Thursday September 21.

The preliminary theme for this fall is how to define cognition, a topic that has been central in the discussions for and against the Clark & Chalmers paper on Extended Mind. A list of suggested papers are presented in the schedule below, but we are of course open to suggestions for other topics or other papers related to thistopic.

Possible future themes are for instance Neuroscience and multiple realization, Must cognition be representational, but we also look forward to suggestions of other topics from the participants.

Unless otherwise, the papers can be downloaded from LiU's library.Please contact Nils Dahlbäck if you cannot access a copy of the paper.
