Workshop title

To Ask, See, Listen and Smell – Cognitive Aspects of Classical Mastery

Workshop times

Saturday 1430 - 1600

Workshop description

In this session Charlie offers his personal insights into Classical diagnosis from both ancient and modern perspectives. Looking first at the Han dynasty quest for discerning pattern and change by means of perceptual acuity, he then examines the extent to which this is mirrored in today’s cognitive science. Included are tips on practical application and activities we can use to cultivate these skills.
