Our special guest today is
Stevan Harnad, a prominent figure in the Open Access movement. Author of
the famous 'Subversive Proposal', founder of 'Psycoloquy' and the Journal
Behavioral and Brain Sciences, creator and administrator of AmSciForum, one
of the main coordinators of CogPrints initiative – the list could be
stretched far beyond that – he doesn't really need introduction for anyone
not wholly a stranger to the story of the  Open Access movement. A
cognitive scientist specialising in categorization, communication and
consciousness, Harnad is Professor of cognitive sciences at the Université
du Québec à Montréal and University of Southampton, external member of the
Hungarian Academy of Sciences and doctor honoris causa, University of
Liège. But even his polemics with John Searle about the Chinese Room didn't
become as famous and influential as his Open Access advocacy.
