Introduction to the Cognitive Sciences
- Talet på semester1
Mål og innhald
The purpose of this course is to give students at the bachelor's program in cognitive science a broad understanding of the field of cognitive science from an interdisciplinary perspective. The course discusses models of cognition that are based on empirical studies of human behaviour and computer models of artificial intelligence. We will look at different theories of knowledge representation, reasoning, learning and comprehension, and explore how natural language, perception, and consciousness relate to thinking. Furthermore, we look at how cognitive science has its roots in various subjects such as computer science, mathematics, information science, linguistics, psychology and philosophy, and explore the relationship between formal- and psychological models of explanation.
A student who has completed the course should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:
- has an overview of how knowledge from computing, mathematics, linguistics, psychology and philosophy can combine to give us an understanding of thinking.
- understands how the other courses in the program contribute to cognitive science, and has a basis for specialization in the master degree.
- can reflect critically on issues that are central to cognitive science.
