Philosophy of Mind
Links:

Synopsis:
  • The mental (beliefs, desires, sensations, emotions, thoughts, etc) is the subject of "folk psychology", not science
  • We explain people's behavior by using a vocabulary which ascribes mental states to people
  • Only brain processes exist.
  • Folk physics was replaced by the more precise language of Newton's Physics
  • There is nothing in the brain that resembles what folk psychology talks about
