You will study among one of the world’s largest and most vibrant postgraduate communities in philosophy, alongside internationally recognised leaders in the study of mind, language and embodied cognition.
By choosing this Mind, Language and Embodied Cognition program offered by The University of Edinburgh, you will be entering one of the most exciting areas of contemporary research in philosophy of mind, an increasingly popular field in which many large unsolved problems remain.
