Philosophy Forum 06/04/2017-Faghihi et al: A cognitive model fleshes out Kahneman’s fast and slow systems

Dear All

this week the forum will follow a thread that emerged in the discussion on expertise: Kahneman’s system 1 and system 2 model. This paper looks at the implementation of it as a system of cognition and will hopefully be an interesting springboard for discussion.

The reading is available here and the meeting will be at the slightly earlier time of 13:15-14:45 in UL102.

with best wishes

Lincoln Philosophy Forum 02/03/2017 -Martin Heidegger: On the Nature of Language

Dear All

it doesn’t take much of a Martin mention for me to shovel him back in for discussion and his recent Rorty pop-up provides exactly that. To this end I am suggesting we read section one (about the first 10 double pages of the pdf) of ‘The Nature of Language’ .

I would also suggest this small optional reading which might help uncover what on earth he means by Ereignis.

The meeting will be in UL102 14:15-15:45.

with best wishes

Graham
