How the human mind works? How we think? What makes us what we are? Why are we different? The general goals of this program are actually even more interesting than these questions.
What Professor Paul Bloom wants to do is to provide a state of the art introduction to the most important topic: us. The program will be approaching these from a range of directions, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of thought and behavior. It explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, persuasion, love, lust, hunger, art, fiction, and dreams.
