We would like to invite everyone interested in the mind and the brain to our open inauguration lecture „Language at the forefront of cognitive science: three lessons from Jan Baudouin de Courtenay” with our distinguished guest speaker dr Tomasz Bąk, University of Edinburgh.
Since the very beginning of humankind up to the present day, study of language and its disorders has been at the forefront of the exploration of mind and brain.
Following life and work of JBdeC, one of the most distinguished Polish scientist of the early 20th Century with a strong connection to Warsaw, we will discover developments which have shaped and are still shaping cognitive science of our time. The event marks the inauguration of the new Master’s degree programme in Cognitive Science at the University of Warsaw: http://cogsci.uw.edu.pl/.
Given the interdisciplinary character of the talk and the Cognitive Science programme, we welcome everybody with interest in language, mind, brain and cognition, whatever your disciplinary background might be. The talk and discussion will be followed by food & drinks reception and exhibition on the life and works of Jan Baudouin de Courtenay.
