Course Memo

This course examines the mind-body problem and the solutions from mainstream theories. In particular, the seminar questions whether the mind can be reduced to its physical basis. The course also reviews contributions from Neuroscience and AI that have shaped our understanding of the mind. This is a hybrid course that comprises an online pre-recorded lecture and an in-class discussion. Assignments include paper reviews, student presentations, and a final paper.  Familiarity with basic philosophical concepts is recommended. [Faculty Consent Required; Auditors with Faculty Permission]
