The Kinds of Intelligence Reading Group explores comparative and theoretical issues in the philosophy of psychology and cognitive science, with particular focus on the puzzles, insights and challenges presented by non-human intelligence. This term, the group will be led by Edward Young (ey245) on the topic of philosophy, psychology, and intuition.

We will be meeting remotely on Tuesdays, 11.00–12.00noon on a biweekly basis starting on 25 January. All meetings will take place on Google Meet.
