this course was very broad and incredibly interesting. I highly recommend it as introduction to the philosophy of science, but I have to warn you: Once you have started, your journey won't stop here!
this is the great course for the people who are pursuing their carer in philosophy, philosophy of mind to be more precise and also for the people who are thinking of doing psychology later anytime.
This course is very accessible and the explanations in the videos are clear and concise. However, it is not very detailed - the videos give a very introductory and somewhat superficial overview. This is useful for someone who has never read any philosophy of mind or cognitive science before, but if you have a bit of familiarity with this fields, this course may be too easy for you.

the sessions lack review question, either in the middle or the end of the session. the marking scheme is stringent with an 'all or nothing' way. half correct answers will be marked as Zero, making it difficult to know one's mistakes. Interesting course an new information, but give the professors a chair, they get distracted standing up.

The course is just a brief introduction to the topic. The content itself has some sparkling points. The main issue is that, there isn't a lot of correlation between the course itself with the quizzes. Making the quizzes not a very good way to self-evaluate and self-reflect on the content.
A good introduction for those looking to acquaint themselves with the philosophy of cognitive science and what it entails. But there is not a lot of depth. So if you're already familiar with the basic ideas of bayesian cognitive science, embodiment, etc., this is not for you.

A lot of this material was interesting, but it didn't seem to hang together as a whole, and I didn't feel that it fully addressed the questions mentioned in the course description--there wasn't a lot from the philosophy point of view.

It is an introductory course, it makes you curious about the topic but I found the last essay too complex for the level taught in the course. I would have liked it to be longer and that the weekly lectures were more linked.

the idea of the course is interesting, but I think that some topics are complicated and uninteresting. I expected other issues to be addressed. The firsties lesons was the best for me.

Very interesting and mind opening course. I highly recommand it to those who are interested in the cross field of psychology, philosophy & technology.

Interesting videos, but quite basic. Would be good to include more cognitive psychology experiments and cases involving patients
por Cliff S•
Very nice course, active forum, no issues technical or otherwise -but- it is more about science than Philosophy.

The last segment on embodiment is quite difficult to appreciate and the content is not in well flow.
por Cindy L•
Interesting subject, but the course is only a quick introduction and doesn't go into much detail.

The course was interesting but I would have liked it to be more comprehensive and detailed.

Not very deep
The examples are too many and too long. Some of the concepts are very basic and really don’t require this amount of explaining. This is philosophy, it is supposed to be abstract and intellectually simulating but instead it was mostly focused on mundane and sensory examples.
Also, the instructors were not lively at all. Their voice was so flat that I opted to read the transcripts instead of watching the videos.
I hope this course can be more systematic in terms of the structure on the concepts and lecturers.

I expected more philosophy and psychology to be covered in this course. I completed this course.

Too introductory, it must contain more information
