Cog-Sci/Philosophy Reading Group at Boğaziçi, Fall 2018.

with 3 comments

We will continue with our philosophy/cog-sci reading group this semester on

Mondays from 5.30-730pm in JF507.

Everyone is welcome!

As cognition is something done by animals, getting a clearer idea about the nature of living beings is helpful for getting a better understanding of cognition, so we thought we would start the semester by reading a couple of the articles from the edited volume:  Everything Flows: Towards a Processual Philosophy of Biology edited by Daniel J. Nicholson and John Dupré, Oxford University Press, 2018.

This semester we will start on Monday, September 24th, by reading:

Daniel J. NicholsonReconceptualizing the Organism: From Complex Machine to Flowing Stream

On Monday, October 1st we will read the following chapter

Johanna SeibtOntological Tools for the Process Turn in Biology
