Description: This course explores various philosophical questions raised by neuroscience. How do we investigate and explain the brain? Do psychological explanations ultimately ‘reduce’ to neuroscience? Are mental states nothing more than electro-chemical states of the brain? Does the brain literally perform computations on internal representations? Could neuroscience ever explain consciousness? Repeatable for Credit.
