Philosophy of Mind

College of Arts + Science
HSSC
"This course will study the nature of the mind: Are mind and brain one and the same? Does the mind work like a serial computer or a complex neural net? Are emotion and reason independent? Can science explain consciousness? Is there a self? Is free will an illusion? There will be extensive reading about the contemporary research on these questions. Discussion, papers and presentations will be required."
