I have been away from Pittsburgh for about a year (May 2008-August 2009), and since I came back, I have been impressed by the amount of philosophy of cognitive science going on in Pittsburgh.
– I am teaching a graduate seminar surveying the philosophy of cognitive science (Mark Sprevak and Lisa Damm are seating in the seminar);
– David Danks and Clark Glymour are teaching a grad seminar on rational models of cognition;
– Horatio is teaching a graduate seminar surveying the philosophy of mind at CMU;
– Natalie Gold (decision making), Mark Sprevak (computation, extended mind, etc.), and Drossi Stoyanov (psychiatry) are visiting the Center for Philosophy of Science;
– Lisa Damm (emotions) is post-doc at the Center for Philosophy of Science;
– Lisa, Mark, Jim Bogen, several graduate students and myself have organized a weekly reading group.
I’d be curious to have your opinion about other places in the USA or elsewhere. NYC with Jesse Prinz and soon Alva Noe? Saint Louis with Gualtiero, Carl Craver, John Doris, etc.? Vancouver? Elsewhere?
