PHL 223 - Twentieth Century Analytic Philosophy (3 Cr.)

(COG 223 )
This course will focus on philosophers’ efforts to provide satisfactory accounts of the nature of the mind, its relationship to the body, and consciousness. Among the accounts we will study are materialism, logical behaviorism, functionalism, and intentionality. We will then study some recent findings in cognitive science and neuroscience and consider the impact of those findings on the philosophical positions we have examined. Prerequisite: either sophomore standing, a 100-level philosophy course, or permission of the instructor. Spring semester, alternate years. Welch.
