WikiLogic: How the Internet affects the way we think

Language of instruction: English

About the module: The primary objective is to explore the way in which changing media landscapes affect our epistemic practices, taking the rise of the Internet as its main example. The secondary objective is to assess the impact of the Internet on the organization of knowledge in society, including educational systems, and on key notions such as information, reliability, authorship and copyright. Students will acquire and practice skills in critical analysis, argumentation and presentation (orally, written, and using digital media).

Lecturer: Dr. Jan Sleutels studied Philosophy in Nijmegen where he also completed a dissertation on the philosophy of cognitive science. He is currently teaching Metaphysics at Leiden University. His recent research has focused on the history of the mind, in particular the role of communication technologies (media such as speech, writing, the printing press and Internet) on the structure of mental processes.
