Meeting Description:

The summer course is aimed at providing a state-of-the-art cutting-edge scientific and research-oriented training for post-doctoral young researchers and highly promising pre-doctoral students from European and overseas universities and research institutes on the nature of the relationship between culture and cognition.

The course will concentrate on recent theoretical and empirical advances in the scientific study of the role that evolved domain-specific cognitive adaptations such as peripheral and central modular and core knowledge systems of the mind play in explaining the emergence, transmission, and stabilization as well as the variability and universal aspects of cultural phenomena across different societies and cultural environments.

These issues will be explored from an interdisciplinary perspective that integrates several different, but partially overlapping fields of knowledge and scientific inquiry including anthropology, ethnology, evolutionary and developmental psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, theories of communication, cross-cultural and comparative approaches to human and nonhuman culture and cultural learning, philosophy of mind, cognitive archeology, etc. The course will be taught by a faculty consisting of internationally acknowledged leading experts of these fields of inquiry from a variety of European countries (France, England, Hungary) as well as from the United States.
