The purpose of this course is to introduce students to human cognition: our ways of coming to know about the world and about one another. This course will concentrate on the classic topics in adult cognition: memory, attention, categorization, problem-solving, reasoning, and decision making. Special attention will be paid to the relationship between logic and the psychology of reasoning, and the relationship between linguistics and the psychology of language.
