Topics in Logic and Semantics: Computational Theory of Mind
Spring 2020 - If you're a cognitive science major. TAKE. THIS. CLASS. I cannot emphasize this enough. It is by far the most relevant class to the major. It's honestly a joke that UCLA forces you to take a neuroscience class despite it being pure memorization of information you'll forget promptly after finals. This class not only gives you the major implications of cognitive science, but it actually sticks with you way after finals week is over. I know you're a cognitive science major because you like big picture questions. Don't take that stupid psychology elective that says inflammatory things based off of tiny sample sizes. Take Philos 133. Also, this class is like the avatar. But instead of being the bridge between spirits and humans, it's the bridge between philosophy and science. One day Greenberg will be talking about the principles of computation and computer science, and the next day he'll be talking about its existential implications on our mind. This class was full of mic drops and I had an absolute blast. If this class is being offered, I cannot urge you fast enough to hit that enroll button. Just do it. You won't regret it.
