Philosophy of Cognitive Science (PCS)

We focus on a broad range of issues connected to the philosophy of cognitive science, with a slight preference for topics associated with representation. See below for examples of papers we've read this year, and visit the previous year's page for more.

The reading group takes place online via Zoom. Anyone interested who's not already on our dedicated mailing list should contact Stephen Mann or Manolo Martínez.
