Number Title Instructor Days/time Room
290-1 Graduate Seminar: Conceptual Representation Ginsborg/Lombrozo Th 2-4 234 Moses Hall

This seminar, co-taught with Tania Lombrozo (Psychology), will explore theoretical and empirical issues in the study of conceptual representation. In particular, we will consider contemporary work from philosophy and psychology, addressing issues such as: How are conceptual representations structured? How do they refer to the world? And how are they acquired? The seminar will be co-taught by a philosopher and a psychologist (and cross-listed in both departments), so the approach will be interdisciplinary and students are encouraged to have an interest and some background in both psychology and philosophy. Requirements will include active participation in class discussions as well as a final paper.
