Description

Contemporary Issues in Philosophy of Mind and Cognition. Instructor: Prof. Ranjan K. Panda and Prof. Rajakishore Nath,

Department of Humanities and Social Science, IIT Bombay. We human beings are minded beings with several intrinsic features such as rationality, feelings, intentionality, subjectivity, freedom, etc. which make this conscious life significant. It is philosophically essential to reflect on these human features and also reflect on other creatures and things that share the world with us. They also display intelligence and consciousness in their behaviour. This course analyses how human mind is unique in comparison to chimpanzees or robots and how mind can be completely explained in scientific terms
