CfA – Postgraduate Summer Course – “Creative Cognition: Evolutions, Processes, Applications” - Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, 27 June - 2 July, 2017

This interdisciplinary course (https://summeruniversity.ceu.edu/cognition-2017) will address the human ability to find creative solutions to new problems, a capacity that has allowed us to overcome obstacles in problem solving that are insurmountable to other species. Creative problem solving is therefore viewed as a crucial cognitive component in enabling the rapid progression of human culture. The course will comprise lectures and discussions in the mornings. The afternoons will be filled with activities exercising creative thinking that include joint work on a sketch for a research proposal, artist workshops, and opportunities for students to present their own research. 

 

The application deadline is February 14, 2017.  News and updates: https://www.facebook.com/ceu.summer
