PHIL 1.18 The Self in Philosophy, Psychology, and Neuroscience

What makes you, YOU? Is it the sum of your memories, or your brain, or perhaps an immortal soul? In this course, we will cross the centuries together to examine ancient and modern theories of personal identity in philosophy and consider also current empirical perspectives from the cognitive sciences. You will discover canonical readings from historical and contemporary sources in multiple philosophical traditions and discuss how famous clinical cases challenge our thinking about the self.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
