290-2 Graduate Seminar: Attention, Consciousness and Mental Causation Campbell Tu 2-4 234 Moses Hall

We will start out by looking at joint attention and its role in linguistic communication. Then we’ll move on to the phenomenon of attention itself and its relation to consciousness. Finally, we’ll explicitly consider what kind of causal analysis to give of perceptual experience, given the roles that attention and consciousness play in perception.
