U73170 Wittgenstein's Later Philosophy

Description

This module is designed to introduce students to the mature work of Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951), one of the most influential thinkers in the history of philosophy. Particular emphasis is placed upon his posthumous masterpiece Philosophical Investigations (1953) in which he attempts to dissolve many problems central to philosophy through an investigation of language and its use. The module thus also contrasts his radical conception of philosophy with that standardly found in other works, including those of his younger self.

24.119 Mind and Machines (MIT)

Description

This course is an introduction to many of the central issues in a branch of philosophy called philosophy of mind. Some of the questions we will discuss include the following. Can computers think? Is the mind an immaterial thing? Or is the mind the brain? Or does the mind stand to the brain as a computer program stands to the hardware? How can creatures like ourselves think thoughts that are "about" things? (For example, we can all think that Aristotle is a philosopher, and in that sense think "about" Aristotle, but what is the explanation of this quite remarkable ability?) Can I know whether your experiences and my experiences when we look at raspberries, fire trucks and stop lights are the same? Can consciousness be given a scientific explanation?

24.500 Topics in Philosophy of Mind: Mental Content (MIT)

Description

Propositions are everywhere in the philosophy of mind. Believing, hoping, and intending (for example) are said to be "propositional attitudes", mental states that involve relations to propositions. The seminar will examine issues at the heart of the dispute between the proposition-aficionados and their detractors. The course will be divided into five parts, covering: (1) de se thought; (2) propositions; (3) knowing how; (4) perceptual content; (5) the knowledge argument.
