Summer Seminars on Neuroscience and Philosophy at Duke University organized with Felipe De Brigard

Collaborate in our summer seminars for neuroscience and philosophy, a three year program sponsored by the John Templeton Foundation and Duke University. Our goal is to advance knowledge at the intersection of our fields. Together we can apply cutting-edge scientific research to the big questions on free will, morality, human nature, perception, memory, knowledge, consciousness, and more… 

This funded two-week seminar experience produces valuable research and lasting relationships. Philosophers will learn new developments in neuroscience, while neuroscientists will study contemporary philosophy. You'll form interdisciplinary teams and design your own experiments. The most promising projects will receive funding for the next year.

Coursera Courses

THINK AGAIN I: HOW TO UNDERSTAND ARGUMENTS

THINK AGAIN II: HOW TO REASON DEDUCTIVELY

THINK AGAIN III: HOW TO REASON INDUCTIVELY

THINK AGAIN IV: HOW TO AVOID FALLACIES

Reasoning is important. This series of four short courses will teach you how to do it well. You will learn simple but vital rules to follow in thinking about any topic at all and common and tempting mistakes to avoid in reasoning. We will discuss how to identify, analyze, and evaluate arguments by other people (including politicians, used car salesmen, and teachers) and how to construct arguments of your own in order to help you decide what to believe or what to do. These skills will be useful in dealing with whatever matters most to you.
