The Imperfect Cognitions Network
The aim of the Imperfect Cognitions research network was to bring together different perspectives on imperfect cognitions from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. philosophy, psychology, psychiatry) and stimulate an exchange of ideas on the themes of project PERFECT.
It is important to us that the researchers who joined the network were based in different geographical areas, and were at different stages of their academic career. What they all had in common is that they were working on imperfect cognitions in the clinical or non-clinical population (e.g., delusional beliefs, distorted memories, confabulatory explanations, implicit cognitions) and were interested in exploring the pragmatic and epistemic features of such cognitions. Our intention was to share research outcomes, meet and talk whenever possible, and collaborate on project-related publications.
Network members did truly collaborate and we have co-authored publications, research visits, and co-organised events as evidence of their engagement. We thank them for their comtinued interest in our research.
Some of our network members were also part of the International Advisory Board of the project, received an update on the project activities every six months, and provided regular feedback on our progress. We thank them for their advice and support.
The project ended in September 2019, but members of the network continue to interact on the project blog (Imperfect Cognitions) and via our Twitter feed (@epistinnocence).
