Hi, Our next meeting will be on November 24 at 2:30 (room 8438 in SSC). We will discuss a paper by Apperly and Butterfill (the names are making me hungry for some kind of pie or tart) on the question of two systems for belief states. You can find the paper here, complete with highlights
Our theme this year will be on the psychology of dual systems. Are two systems necessary to explain the seeming variety of cognitive processes and behaviours? This is an old question in philosophy and psychology and there are new answers.
We will meet in Room 7409 in SSC at 2:30-4:00 and will discuss the Keran and Schul paper and the Milner and Goodale Paper. Other readings may show up on the reading list as well, though we’ll stick to these two for now.
When you get a chance, listen to the excellent podcast by Radiolab call “words”. It is about how language = thought. Guests include Ann Senghas and Liz Spelke.
This is the video I mentioned in our last meeting. It described two kinds of visual Agnosia
