PSCI 125 Mental Imagery in Art and Science

This course explores how mental imagery, the way the mind represents the outside world, helps scientists develop scientific theories, mathematicians deduce theorems from axioms and definitions, and artists create artworks. It also presents the scientific evidence for the underlying unity of mental imagery in these fields. In particular, this course applies scientific methodology to investigate the nature of human perception and how it leads to the formation of mental images. It is intended for the STEM and humanities students to learn specifically about how human perception works and how it leads the progress in arts, mathematics, and science.
