A textbook-centered introduction to both the history of and state-of-the-art theorizing in embodied cognitive science. Through interactive group discussions, the course will explore key topics such as the machine metaphor of mind, perception and action, robotics and artificial life, cognitive technology, and consciousness. Book chapter selection will be tailored to the interests and backgrounds of the students.

Prerequisites or Prior Knowledge

Due to the highly interactive and group-based nature of the course, the number of students is limited to 9 and preference will be given to students with a background in one of the disciplines that form the cognitive sciences.
