Cognition and Culture Institute


The International Cognition & Culture Institute (ICCI) was founded in September 2008 thanks to an initial grant from the London School of Economics and Political Science and support from the Institut Jean Nicod (ENS, EHESS, CNRS) in Paris.

The rationale for this Web Institute is twofold:

- Scholars in the emerging cross-disciplinary field of cognition and culture studies are scattered around the world and few (if any) institutions has a sufficient number and variety of them for optimal research and teaching.

- It is in the very nature of this field to call for international and interdisciplinary collaborations.
