Teaching Cognitive Science as Classics
chapterposted on 2023-05-28, 01:12 authored by Holmes, WN
Cognitive Science is usually taught as a postgraduate course, or as a relevant group of undergraduate units brought together as a major course of study in cognitive science. This paper argues that more basic units can be taught somewhat as classics used to be, aiming to incorporate quite basic but essential learning into undergraduate degrees, and should even be introduced into school courses. This argument is supported by a brief description of experience in such tertiary teaching. As a foundation for such "neo-classic" teaching, those working in cognitive science should review their image of their discipline, and should seek common cause with workers in the field of information systems.
