Learning Objectives

This PhD programme trains young researches who intend to study human cognition with an interdisciplinary approach, using theories and methods developed in philosophy, psychology, computer science, and cognitive neuroscience.

1) Advanced topics in the Philosophy of Mind and Cognition (4 CFU)
