Welcome to The Imperfect Cognitions Network!
The aim of the network was to bring together different perspectives from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. philosophy, psychology, psychiatry) and stimulate exchange of ideas on the themes of the project on Epistemic Innocence.
It is important to us that the researchers joining the network were based in different geographical areas, and were at different stages of their academic career. What they all had in common is that they were working on imperfect cognitions in the clinical or non-clinical population (delusional beliefs, distorted memories, implicit biases and confabulatory explanations), and were interested in exploring the pragmatic and epistemic features of such cognitions.
Our intention was and still is to meet and talk whenever possible and collaborate on project-related publications. Many network members attended the project workshop in May, and we are working on two special issues of interdisciplinary journals, one on costs and benefits of imperfect cognitions, and one on neutral or positive aspects of delusional beliefs. When available, more details will appear on our project outputs page.
