I am going to be uploading a bunch of new content for this little website of mine in the first few weeks of January. This content includes a couple of political commentaries, book reviews, and (most exciting for me) a bunch of article summaries in the philosophy of mind.
To me, Phil of Mind is on a spectrum with Philosophy of Cognitive Science. Historically, discussions typically characterized as phil of mind material gradually transitioned into discussions about cognitive science after that field’s advent in the 1970’s. In my eyes Phil of Mind is thus best characterized as a historical category where the discussions revolved primarily around the ontology of mental states: what are mental states and how do we best analyze mental terms? The articles uploaded will thus revolve around these two central questions.
