  • Objectives
    Until about a century ago, the study of the mind was carried out mostly by philosophers. Psychology and linguistics then emerged as distinct disciplines. Psychologists developed an empirical approach to perception and reasoning, while linguists focused on the nature of language. When artificial intelligence made its appearance, just after the Second World War, yet another perspective opened up. Today cognitive science is an exciting discipline that integrates elements of philosophy, psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, and computer science into a unified field of study. Cognitive scientists study cognition, perception, and emotion from all these perspectives, ranging from abstract concepts at one end to well-defined empirical research on language and cognition and computer modelling at the other.
