Students will continue to develop analytical reasoning skills, by undertaking detailed study of a range of further topics in philosophy of mind. Study of these topics will be informed by evidence from neuroscience and cognate disciplines. Students will understand theories and arguments concerning a range of philosophical topics not covered in 5AAN Neuroscience and the Mind.
Students will appreciate ways in which philosophical arguments and empirical evidence can contribute to our understanding of the mind. Students will learn to express ideas precisely in writing and speech, and to select and arrange material in writing. The modules run in each academic year are subject to change in line with staff availability and student demand so there is no guarantee every module will run.

Synopsis In The Meaning of Mind, Thomas Szasz argues that only as a verb does the word "mind" name something in the real world, namely, attending or heeding. Minding is the ability to pay attention and adapt to one's environment by using language to communicate with others and oneself. Viewing the "mind" as a potentially infinite variety of self-conversations is the key that unlocks many of the mysteries we associate with this concept.
