Anthony P. Chemero, associate professor of psychology and scientific and philosophical studies of mind
Thursday, December 8, 2011
Where does a person end and the world begin? Human minds are not encapsulated within brains, or even within bodies. At least sometimes, that is, humans and portions of their environments together make up unified, autonomous systems.
The case for this is anything but direct. Professor Chemero will discuss robotic artists, Buddhism, cellular automata, the Gaia hypothesis, phenomenological philosopher Martin Heidegger, statistical mechanics, bad 80s cinema, and, most importantly, experiments done by my students at Franklin & Marshall.
Reception follows immediately in Kreisel lobby of Roschel Performing Arts Center
This event is open to the public.
