''I think, therefore I am. [Cogito, ergo sum.]'' wrote René Descartes (1596-1650), French philosopher, oft-called Father of Modern Philosophy, and therefore an important historical figure in the founding of cognitive science, an interdisciplinary amalgam of philosophy, psychology, linguistics, AI, neuroscience, and anthropology. Let us discuss, celebrate, and critique, the very idea that language, perception, memory, attention, reasoning, learning, and emotion are all best understood as computer programs executed by our brain. Through the magic of social virtual reality, join us in a maze shaped like a brain floating over Paris next to the Eiffel Tower! This informal meet-up occurs during #CogSci2020, the 42nd Annual Virtual Meeting of the Cognitive Science Society*.
