Skrócony opis:

The aim of this course is to give students an overview of research in the cognitive science of science - a multi- and inter-disciplinary field that investigates various mechanisms underlying scientific activity. The disciplines studying different aspects of science include philosophy of science, correlational psychology, cognitive psychology, sociology, anthropology, artificial intelligence, and neuroscience. Each of them has its own repertoire of approaches that are sometimes difficult to reconcile with one another. Because it would be impossible to provide a comprehensive description of all relevant literature, the lectures focus on selected topics and attempt to shed light on them from a wide range of theoretical perspectives.
