Network theorizing is playing a major role in a wide range of disciplines, from cell and molecular biology to the social sciences. This course will explore the various roles network theorizing is playing across this range of disciplines, with the goals of discovering whether there are common principles and how different disciplines might gain from the insights developed in the others.
Cog Sci. 200 is structured around a series of lectures. These lectures are open to the entire UCSD communiity, but they are invited for the course and students in the course are encouraged to be active in the discussions at the lectures. As preparation for the lectures, we will meet for an hour before the lecture and discuss papers relevant to the topic of the lecture.
