Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science

Philosophy of mind is increasingly pursued in interdisciplinary mode. This is the approach adopted by all those in the Department who work in this area. Members of the Department play a significant part in the organization of the University of Maryland Cognitive Science Colloquium, and some are members or associate members of the interdisciplinary program in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science (NACS).
