Philosophy of Mind
Links:

Synopsis:
  • Several independent brain systems work in parallel
  • Evolutionary additions to the brain
  • Many minds coexist in a confederation
  • A module located in the left hemisphere interprets the actions of the other modules and provides explanations for our behavior
  • Beliefs do not preceed behavior, they follow it. Behavior determines our beliefs
  • It is only by behaving that we conceptualize our selves
  • There are many "i"'s and one "i" that makes sense of what all the other "i"'s are doing
  • The verbal self keeps track of what the person is doing
