this course was very broad and incredibly interesting. I highly recommend it as introduction to the philosophy of science, but I have to warn you: Once you have started, your journey won't stop here!

this is the great course for the people who are pursuing their carer in philosophy, philosophy of mind to be more precise and also for the people who are thinking of doing psychology later anytime.

Great high-level overview that introduces some very interesting concepts. Great intro for those who are just exploring this area of study. Entices you to dive deeper into the topic!

Wonderful course! It's a great introduction to the topic of embodied cognition. My only suggestion is to expand it for the people who are really interested in these topics.

I enjoyed this course, however some of the lectures were a bit slow or somehow loose. Evenso, I think this is a very good introductory course to a fascinating topic.

A very brief, concise, and fun-to-learn course. It helped me bridge the gap between AI cognition and human cognition. Love the presentation style of the lectures!

I enjoyed this course very much! Provided a very fundamental framework for understanding what cognition is, and the associated problems, such as mind-body

Maybe I was hoping for more philosophy and a little less science. But it was great to learn and think about applied sciences using cognitive sciences too.

A good course. Very interesting but it is rather on the surface and doesn't really go in depth explaining the evolution of cognitive sciences

I found the first three weeks to be great. The final week felt rushed and underwhelming. It was a shame to end on a whimper.

This is a relatively basic introductory program. Some interesting ideas had been introduced yet not been developed deeply.

This was an excellent introduction to cognition, how we perceive it, seek to understand it, and strive to replicate it.

A good overview though it does mix and match definition from Edinburgh research rather than research in general.

The slides for the last weeks lectures were a bit unstructured, would love if that was a bit more organized.

Very interesting course. Let down by the fact many of the links to 3rd-party resources are broken.

It lacks a certain unity, maybe because it has many different teachers.
