PH 4141
Philosophy of Mind - Level 6
A systematic approach to the study of mind, mental/psychological functions and the mind-body relation. By reading historical and contemporary material on these issues we will explore whether, and if so how, we can fit the mind in the world as described by science, whether machines can think, how we can understand the existence of the self and why thinking and feeling seem to be so different from other phenomena in the world.
