18th Annual Conference of Italian Association of Cognitive Science

Rovereto, Italy, December 15-17, 2022

Presentation – The explaining mind

The human mind dedicates significant resources to generating and evaluating explanations for a vast array of phenomena, concepts and entities — including the mind itself. The study of explanations is an interdisciplinary enterprise that brings together research from a broad range of disciplines and has profound implications for virtually all areas of human knowledge.

Part of this work consists of identifying the methods and approaches best suited to defining what makes an explanation meaningful, as well as how natural and artificial systems carry out explanatory tasks. To properly address such questions, a variety of viewpoints are needed. In this sense, cognitive science, being interdisciplinary by nature, is uniquely equipped to advance our understanding of the topic.

The 18th AISC Conference will focus on the theme of the explaining mind, by considering a spectrum of issues. We welcome presentations on the state of the art and on ongoing research, as well as presentations on perspectives that encourage dialogue among the various subdisciplines of cognitive science.
