    The quest to understand the mind has motivated some of history's most profound thinkers. But only in our own time are we beginning to see the true complexity of this quest, as today's philosophers draw on the latest evidence from neuroscience, psychology, artificial intelligence, linguistics, and other fields to probe deeply into the inner workings of the mind.

    Story
    What did you love best about Philosophy of Mind: Brains, Consciousness, and Thinking Machines?

    I liked that this series took the problem of consciousness seriously, as David Chalmers might say. This series of lectures doesn't present the hard problem and then give a easy-problem solution dressed up as something that crosses the explanatory gap as some authors do.


    What other book might you compare Philosophy of Mind: Brains, Consciousness, and Thinking Machines to and why?

    The Implications of consciousness (also part of the great courses)


    What about Professor Patrick Grim’s performance did you like?

    He gave a fair amount of time to various perspectives.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The most interesting tidbit that there are actually antitheories - it has always seemed clear to me that science could never give an illuminating explanation, solution to the mind/body problem. But I didn't know that such a stance rests on something called and antitheory.


    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes the way the professor talks can REALLY get on my nerves for some reason and that actually made listening to this somewhat less enjoyable than other professors like Daniel Robinson.
