Philosophy of Mind

Over the years, the A level syllabi have covered various topics in epistemology. The  current (2017) AQA Philosophy syllabus covers many issues, including the nature of mind, substance and property dualism, philosophical behaviourism, eliminative materialism, type identity theory and functionalism. These topics are all discussed in handouts available from the Routledge companion website for A level philosophy. My writings on topics in philosophy of mind collected here are supplementary to that collection. For discussions of personal identity, see Metaphysics.
