3rd Avant Conference Trends in Interdisciplinary Studies: Understanding Social Cognition
Understanding Social Cognition Conference (20-22 October 2017)
Within the social sciences, it is widely accepted that groups of people exhibit social properties and dynamics that emerge from, but cannot be reductively identified with the actions and properties of individual members. Nevertheless, psychology and cognitive science have only reluctantly embraced the idea that something similar might happen in the domain of mind and cognition.
