u mean graduating with honors in the philosophy dept? that should set you apart. but i wouldnt focus on this in my personal statement.PuKcAo said:How much do you think it would help me if I were to get published in an undergraduate philosophy journal( I'm a philosophy major)? also how much does it help to graduate from the honors college?
Like the others said: nothing wrong with a non-science pub. Certainly a nice credential.So, I decided to use the search function and came across a thread with my same question. Yay.
I am majoring in neuroscience (B.S.) and history & philosophy of science (B.A.) As far as research goes, I have been working on a project based in strict neuroanatomy for 2+ years, which I will present shortly and have a 2nd author pub on. My question is, what about a philosophy publication?
This summer, and beyond, I have the unique opportunity to work with a philosophy proff who focuses on the cognitive sciences. He and I will work on a project I proposed studying the neurophilosophy of perception. I certainly enjoy the topic, no doubt. But what I want to know is, should I push this project to the point of being eligible for publication?
It will take a lot of time and effort, and I am kind of anxious about how non-science research is perceived. Really though, it is a topic at the bridge between my two majors, and I think it will be a lot of fun.
