Dear All,

The Philosophy PhD Program at CEU cordially invites you to a Public Lecture
presented by
Peter Gärdenfors (Lund University Cognitive Science Kungshuset)
Thursday, 26. October, 5.00 PM - Nádor u. 11. Room 213

The Evolution of Thinking

''The main thesis of this talk is the evolution of human thinking is
characterised by a successively greater detachment from the environment. In
contrast, animal cognition is more entrained with the external world as it is
presented to the sensory organs.
My analysis builds on distinguishing between two kinds of mental
representations: cued and detached. On the basis of this distinction, I will
argue that as a result of an increasing detachment of representations, a
ladder of cognitive functions can be perceived. The main steps, in the order
they will be presented, are planning, deception, self-awareness, free will,
and linguistic communication.''
