PHL 521

Personal Identity East and West

Questions surrounding personal identity or the 'self' are central to the philosophical traditions of India and Tibet, the West, and contemporary cognitive scientists. A fruitful cross-cultural dialogue concerning the self, subjectivity, and consciousness is emerging. In this course, we examine some of the basic issues and debates through a close reading of a series of papers from leading philosophical scholars of India and Tibet as well as prominent Western philosophers of mind and phenomenologists.
