    Since encountering the likes of Psychodelirium and DT Strain at PF, I have been itching to learn more about how the brain works. Here are some lecture notes for a first course in cognitive science.

    Let's discuss.

    I too am very interested in this subject Tom. I read over a few of the lecture notes, and when I have a little more time I'll post a few things myself.

    I suggest anyone who's interested in cognitive science read Marvin Minsky's, The Society of Mind. It's an easy read because it's written as two hundred, one-page essays on different aspects of cognitive science that provide a good introduction to the subject and when put together present Minsky's own ideas.

    BTW, here's a link to various philosophy radio programs (interviews and such), some of which are Philosophy of Mind programs:

    Um, I could be of fair use. But, is it just me or did the notes not work? I had several blank pages come up, and of all things, quotation marks everywhere. (i guess its my bad luck, that I usually have with computers)
