|3||Nature of Mind||Noë||MWF 4-5||3 LeConte|
This is a course on the nature of mind. The central question we ask: Can we give an account of the mind within the framework of natural science? We will read widely in philosophy and cognitive science as we seek to answer this fundamental question. Among the topics we will cover: the nature of consciousness, the possibility of machine minds, neuroscience as the basic science of human experience, our knowledge of each other.
