Reading Schedule

This is a draft of the reading schedule for Spring. It is likely that the schedule will “stretch out” a bit as topics and readings are added. We will try to keep the exams on schedule, however.

Lecture links with asterisks (*) are from Fall term. These lectures will be replaced by the Spring lectures after the lecture is given.

The main textbook for this class is Cognitive Science: An Introduction to the Study of Mind, by Friedenberg and Silverman (hereafter called F&S). It is available from both the Georgia Tech Bookstore and Engineer’s Bookstore. Be sure to look under look under all the crosslisted sections (CS, ISYE, PST, PSY) if you do not find it under your section.
