Philosophy of Mind (PHI4170.01)

Kimberly Van Orman

What could we possibly know better than our own mind? It turns out to be a pretty complicated question.  What is the nature of mind? Is it fundamentally non-physical? Is it just the brain?  If not, how can it make a difference in the world? If it is, can we account for the richness of conscious experience? We’ll talk about these questions along with issues such as the content of mental states, intentionality, and the problem of other minds.
