Welcome!

In this course, we will discuss various questions in the philosophy of mind. The course is divided into three sections:


- In the first third, we will look at various answers to a question that has long been central to the philosophy of mind, namely: "What is a mind?" We will look at some historical texts, but focus mostly on articles from the past 50 years.

- In the second third, we will look at some other important debates (with some input from you all as to topic), such as: Can machines have minds? To what extent, and how, do our thoughts depend on the environment?

- In the final third, we will look at some contemporary debates (of your choosing) in the philosophy of mind.
