H10476: Philosophy of the Mind in Spark 2016 (Mar. 12 - 13, 2016)
Is your mind just an app that runs on a meat machine? We know where the mind lives (inside the brain!), but what is it? In this class we will survey what contemporary philosophers and scientists have to say about what the mind is, what it does, and why we still don't know for sure. Topics include: The Chinese Room, The Turing Test, Machine Consciousness, The Twin Earth Paradox, The Stroop Effect and other exciting problems.
