Introduction to Embodied Cognitive Science

This course will provide a broad introduction to the growing
importance of the concepts of situatedness, embodiment and dynamics in
cognitive science. It will cover both the key conceptual content and
the historical development of these ideas. In addition, it will survey
classic work in this area. Examples will be drawn from philosophy,
psychology, neuroscience, robotics, and the social sciences. Class
meetings will consist of a combination of lectures by the instructor,
guest lectures, and student presentation and discussion of readings.
