Cognitive Science Reading & Discussion Group Monthly Meetup

  • Mar 17, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The location of this meetup will be Espresso Roma on Hopkins St in Berkeley. 

For this meeting we will be discussing Inside Jokes: Using Humor to Reverse-Engineer the Mind by Matthew Hurley, Daniel Dennett, and Reginald Adams. The ISBN is 0262518694. Depending on how far most of us get reading it, we may spend more than one meeting discussing this book.

We can also share thoughts & ideas about various other books we have read in the field of cognitive science and other related disciplines (such as evolutionary psychology or neuroscience). I look forward to meeting and discussing cognitive science with you!

    Yes - we will be returning to Inside Jokes - lots of food for thought.

    Let us know after the meeting whether you will return to it next month. I've started it, but he's taking his time to state his case, and I want to hear him out before I discuss it. It is a great topic!

      Agreed. I only picked up the book recently and haven't even finished the first chapter.

      I'll add: if you *aren't* going to return to this next month: Was it worth it?

    Just started Inside Jokes - it's quite enjoyable, thought-provoking and full of interesting stuff.

      Yes, for an hour, I went by every single table n stared at every hat, asked at the counter if they can call out 4 Dana n to my surprised, she refused:( Well, I have kept up with the reading ever since I joined the group. This was the first weekend I wasn't on a 2 hour sleep schedule n thot would be good 2 join the discussion. Next time. I felt completely let down by the last chapter just hinging on the pacifist dilemma, didn't seem like a pinkerly finish, rather a grad paper,fwiw. Rest of the book is gr8, reads like the history of violence:)
