Course content

Discovering the mysteries of the mind and some of the most profound questions about ourselves.

What is it to have a mind? How is our mind created by our brain? What is consciousness? How can our mental states drive our actions? Do we have free will? What is it that makes (most) human beings persons? And do we understand other people’s mind?

Traditionally, Philosophy of Mind is part of the analytical tradition in philosophy. Recently, however, a more phenomenological approach to typical questions in the philosophy of mind has provided a refreshing new look on old topics. The advance of cognitive neuroscience is also leaving its trace in the way old questions are posed and answered. Therefore, the research Master’s in Philosophy of Mind combines traditional analytical theorising with insights from phenomenology and the empirical sciences.
