Collin Ford Lucken
My research investigates the notion that what we know is what we can make. Recently, I've been especially interested in what engineers building intelligent autonomous robots have taught philosophers and cognitive scientists about the mind. Building on this case study, my dissertation argues that what philosophers typically consider progress in science is more accurately understood as advacement in engineering.
