PHL 3210 - Philosophy of Mind

Credits: 4
The central question addressed in the philosophy of mind is: how are mental states related to physical states? This course will begin by considering the historical and contemporary theories that attempt to address this problem, including dualism, behaviorism, the identity theory, eliminative materialism, functionalism and embodied cognition. The second half of the course will be devoted to a discussion of a number of contemporary issues in the philosophy of mind, including intentionality, personal identity, consciousness, qualia, language, and social cognition.
Prerequisite(s): PHL 1000 .
