this course was very broad and incredibly interesting. I highly recommend it as introduction to the philosophy of science, but I have to warn you: Once you have started, your journey won't stop here!
this is the great course for the people who are pursuing their carer in philosophy, philosophy of mind to be more precise and also for the people who are thinking of doing psychology later anytime.

A very brief, concise, and fun-to-learn course. It helped me bridge the gap between AI cognition and human cognition. Love the presentation style of the lectures!

I enjoyed this course very much! Provided a very fundamental framework for understanding what cognition is, and the associated problems, such as mind-body

Maybe I was hoping for more philosophy and a little less science. But it was great to learn and think about applied sciences using cognitive sciences too.

A good course. Very interesting but it is rather on the surface and doesn't really go in depth explaining the evolution of cognitive sciences

I found the first three weeks to be great. The final week felt rushed and underwhelming. It was a shame to end on a whimper.
This is a relatively basic introductory program. Some interesting ideas had been introduced yet not been developed deeply.

This was an excellent introduction to cognition, how we perceive it, seek to understand it, and strive to replicate it.

This is a complete introduction the cognitive sciences. A great course to start with, but is still for the beginners
by Jay K•
Exceptional and accessible introductory course into the cognitive science and evolutionary and adaptive principles.
by Robert L•
A good overview though it does mix and match definition from Edinburgh research rather than research in general.

The slides for the last weeks lectures were a bit unstructured, would love if that was a bit more organized.

Approachable, easy to follow, interesting examples, rich additional readings, good lecturers, easy exams

Great course! Could've been longer. Looking forward to more online courses from the U of Edinburgh.

Great course, scratching the surface of many important concepts and explaining them well.
by Amita F•
That is a great class that talks about the basic of philosophy of cognitive sciences.

I enjoyed the course, but felt like something was missing from the course.
by Ignacio J B P•
It lacks a certain unity, maybe because it has many different teachers.
by Marie F•
Really Interesting, gives a first idea of what cognitive sciences are !
A pretty course to have a brief understanding of cognitive science.

One of the most thought provoking courses. Lot to think and learn.
by Jonathan G•
fascinating course. I had no idea this was connected to robotics!
by Sidney C•
This is a well done overview of Cognitive Sciences. Thank you.
by Daniel G•
I was expecting a bit more of Philosophy of research methods

Very interesting course and could have been longer.
