  Summary


  Introduction
 

The philosophy of mind is concerned with the problems associated with the functioning of the mind or brain. Such problems can take on many different aspects, for instance:

• Is the mind separate from the brain, or a by-product of it?
• Is there such a thing as a permanent self or soul?
• What is consciousness?
• Is artificial intelligence possible?

This module will look at these and other related problems.
