PHL 611

Philosophy of Mind

This course will examine, through both classical and contemporary texts, selected issues regarding human (and other) minds such as: How are mind and brain related? What is consciousness? Are thoughts prior to the acquisition of language? Can/could computers think? Do non-human animals think? Can the mind be 'naturalized' (understood as a product of evolution) or must it remain beyond our understanding?
