It’s time to apply for grad school in philosophy. So, this may be of interest to some readers of this blog. The department of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Pittsburgh has a new area of concentation in the History & Philosophy of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Psychiatry.
The participating faculty are Jim Bogen, Clark Glymour, Jim Lennox (who has an interest in psychiatry and in emotions), Peter Machamer, Sandy Mitchell (who is interested in epistemological issues in neuroscience), Bob Olby (who is writing a bio of Crick), Ken Schaffner and me. Not a bad team. More info here.
Note that two contributors to Brains, Carl Craver and, of course, Gualtiero Piccinini, got their phd from Pitt, HPS…
Update: In fact, it’s not two, but three contributors to Brains that got their phd from Pitt, HPS–I did not know that Ken Aizawa also got his phd there.
