Thinking Txoko

Thinking Txoko >>>

The Thinking-Txoko is an innovative alternative space at the  ICOT 2015 . 

The  will be situated in the main hall of the conference and it will gather different speakers and professionals to discuss certain themes of the conference.

By being in an open space there will be more freedom and opportunities to interact, listen, ask and debate for the attendees. 

Tänkbar

During the days of ICOT2015 we will open a "TänkBar" (a venue with thinking on the menu) in connection to interesting lectures and sessions.

In a tasty and visual environment between keynote and featured sessions , we want to help the participants to reflect on what they just have heard in presentations or experienced during workshops.

During coffee breaks and lunches, we will therefore "enhance" the usual café and restaurant environment with various visual aids and tangible thinking tools to help participants to think together while eating or taking a coffee."

50 person per session permited.

Cost: FREE

Language: English

KEYNOTE

MAKING THE MOST OF THE MIND

The human mind is our most unique and powerful resource, enabling us to do everything from shape stone axes to write constitutions and symphonies. So it's entirely natural that for thousands of years we human beings occasionally have used our minds to help our minds work better. The mission is as old as Plato and Aristotle and as new as the most recent investigations of cognitive science and related fields. The International Conferences on Thinking can be seen as both an exploration and a celebration of this quest to make the most of the mind.

Provocatively, efforts to make the most of the mind go well beyond simply tuning up our natural mental capacities. They redirect our typical patterns of thinking in fundamental ways. Why does our thinking need something closer to a transformation than a tune-up? What characterizes today's boldest moves to make the most of the mind? This presentation explores answers to these questions, drawing on contemporary cognitive science.
