Partners-in-crime/blood brothers/occasional roommates Anastasis Germanidis ’13 and Shivan Bhavnani ’13 have been planning this student forum for a while, and finally it’s happening. Consciousness Club and Wesleyan Transhumanists alumni particularly welcome to come:
Engineering Metaphors for Experience (PHIL420) is a student forum about concepts: the ways we consume them, the ways we produce them, the things they do to us, the things we can do with them. We will read texts from fields as diverse as the philosophy of mind, cognitive science, anthropology, media studies, comparative mythology, linguistics, the history of science, and user interface design. In addition, we will experiment with techniques of imparting information that may not have been tried before.
The forum will be worth one full credit. We will meet on Monday nights from 7 to 8:30 PM. If you’re interested or vaguely intrigued, come to our informational meeting this Monday in PAC 002.
Date: Monday, Jan. 30
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Place: PAC 02
