Seminar #9: Life and Mind paper by Thompson

Posted in Seminars by Tom Froese on February 6, 2007


Our next Life and Mind seminar will be tomorrow, Wednesday the 7th of Feb., at 15:00 in room ARUN 404A.

*Seminar #9: Life and Mind paper by Thompson*

Ever wondered what life has to do with mind? What autopoiesis has to do with phenomenology? During this seminar we will be discussing Evan Thompson’s paper on “Life and Mind”, which is a very good introduction for understanding the various facets of the enactive approach to cognitive science and how they all tie together. In addition, it gives a nice preview of some of the key ideas of Thompson’s forthcoming book on the topic.

All welcome.
