Philosophy of mind
| Thinking hard|
or hardly thinking?
|Major trains of thought|
|The good, the bad|
and the brain fart
|Come to think of it|
Some of the major questions in the philosophy of mind include:
- Is mind ultimately material or immaterial? The major answers include materialism, dualism and idealism.
- Is there free will? What is free will?
- The question of personal identity — what makes me the same person today as I was yesterday and as I will be tomorrow?
- The Hard Problem of Consciousness — how and why do we have qualia or phenomenal experiences?
