The First European Summer School on Life & Cognition will offer advanced training on contemporary scientific research about life and cognition,by focusing on some of the central theoretical issues in the fields of biological and cognitive sciences. In particular, the school will put the emphasis on the continuity between biological organization and cognitive capacities and will explore some of those concepts and problems which could play a pivotal role in an integrated scientific framework of life and cognition.

The school will adopt a strongly interdisciplinary approach, by bringing together international experts with diverse backgrounds,
including philosophy, cognitive science,theoretical biology and sciences of complexity. In addition to a series of lectures
in the mornings, the afternoons will be dedicated to workshops and discussions, which will provide
opportunities for in-depth discussion and interactions among lecturers and participants.

The school is organized jointly by the IAS-Research, (Grupo de Filosofía de la Biología),
Universidad del País Vasco / Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea (UPV/EHU), and the
Centre de Recherche en Epistémologie Appliquée (CREA),
Ecole Polytechnique/CNRS, Paris.

The school will be held in Donostia – San Sebastian (Basque Country, Spain)
at the Miramar Palace.
