Philosophy of Mind and Language

Description

The unity of Consciousness. It is widely held that a subject can have only a single field of consciousness at any moment of time. In short, it is commonly held that consciousness is unified. What does the unity of consciousness consist in? Is consciousness always unified? That is, can this unity break down? How is the unity of consciousness connected to the self? Might the nature of the self even be explained in terms of the unity of consciousness? Is consciousness unified across an interval of time as well as at a moment? If so, what does the unity of cross-temporal consciousness consist in? These are some of the issues to be discussed in the course.

 

Students will be evaluated based on a final research paper.
