leave a comment »

Our Cogsci/Philosophy reading group this semester will take place on Mondays from 5-7pm at Boğaziçi in JF507.

We will begin the semester this coming Monday (25/09/2017) and will start reading Susan Carey‘s book The Origin of Concepts. This coming week we will discuss chapters one and two. And we plan to continue with this book for at least the first 4 weeks of the semester. Everyone is welcome.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list, or an electronic copy of the text, please email Duygu at: conceptsandbeliefs@gmail.com

Support for this reading group is provided by Lucas Thorpe’s TÜBİTAK project “Concepts and Beliefs: From Perception to Action” ( 114K348).
