In Memoriam: Jerry Fodor (1935-2017)
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Jerry Fodor. The world’s leading philosopher of mind, Jerry was at the forefront of the cognitive revolution, and a founder of the Rutgers Cognitive Science Center (RuCCS). RuCCS will have an event in Spring 18, and an event in Fall 18 in honor of his memory.
