Almost everyone agrees that we have minds and we have bodies. What-s less clear is exactly how our minds and bodies are related. Is there really just one thing with two ways of describing it- Or are there two very different things that may or may not interact with each other- We will look at a range of answer to questions concerning the relation between mind and body. We will also focus on questions concerning individual senses from both a scientific and a philosophical perspective. Prerequisite(s): One non-logic course in philosophy; or junior or senior standing in the physical, biological, or social sciences; or consent of instructor.
