Dr. Miriam Kyselo                                

Philosopher/Cognitive Scientist

_B8A5371 2

I am a philosopher and cognitive scientist, and I am especially interested in the relationship between self, body and social interaction. My current affiliation is with the Berlin Center for Knowledge Research at the Technical University of Berlin, where I am the principle investigator at Inter-Self Lab. My main research goal is to advance the enactive approach to self and intersubjectivity and help developing an integrative outlook on the human self. From an enactive viewpoint, no self is an island. We are versatile relational networks instead, bodily grounded and technologically mediated.

In my work I adopt an interdisciplinary perspective: I engage with the 4E-approaches to cognition (enacted, extended, embodied, embedded aspects of the mind) and I dialogue and collaborate with analytic philosophy, psychiatry, phenomenology and the cognitive sciences, especially psychology, neuroscience and robotics.

Science of Intelligence I am happy to be part of “Science of Intelligence“ (ScioI), an interdisciplinary research group preparing an application for the Excellence Cluster within Germany’s Excellence Strategy Program. I join forces with great colleagues from various disciplines, including robotics, psychology, philosophy, biology, AI and mathematics to understand one of the greatest research challenges of our time: what is intelligence?
