Kathleen Akins, Simon Fraser University
Unless you’ve lost your mind, or never had one in the first place, likely you’ll agree that your mind is a pretty special part of you. Maybe, even, your mind is all that you are—maybe you ’ re nothing but a mind. Maybe that ’ s too extreme, but you do have to admit that your mind is an excellent candidate for your single most defining feature. It ’ s certainly a much better candidate for the seat of your you-ness than your foot, your liver, or your haircut. So what is this special thing, this mind of yours? In this chapter we’ll examine some of the main aspects of the mind that philosophers have been interested in. We ’ ll also look at some of the main philosophical problems concerning the mind.
