2 November 2009, NWO Symposium "Fads and Fallacies in the name of Cognitive Science"

Date: Monday 2 November 2009
Location: De Driehoek, Willemsplantsoen 1c, Utrecht

The NWO programme committee for Cognition organizes both an internet discussion and an afternoon symposium on " FADS AND FALLACIES in the name of COGNITIVE SCIENCE"

The symposium is organized to discuss exaggerated and conceptually confused claims concerning results of Cognitive Science and Neuroscience. This discussion was initiated by Prof. Pieter Adriaans in a letter. Both the internet discussion and the afternoon symposium are intended as a partial fulfillment of Pieter's request for more attention to these methodological and conceptual issues. Keynote speakers are Prof. Ruth Millikan (University of Connecticut) and Dr. Peter Hacker (St Johns College Oxford). The symposium will be chaired by Prof. dr. Herman Philipse.
