PH 330 Philosophy of Mind

This course focuses on the question of the place of mind in nature and in the world: What is the mark of the mental? What does it mean to be conscious? What is an emotion? How do thoughts have meaning? Can we ever really know the mind of another person? Could a computer ever really think? Do animals have minds? The aim is to clarify what one is asking with such questions in order to begin to formulate answers. Prerequisite: one course in Philosophy or one advanced science course in which the student has had experience reading primary source material. (3)
