Abstract

This series of the Gifford Lectures is presented as a panel discussion among philosophy, psychology and linguistic specialists and theorists. The lecture tackles the topic of how we are able to define and understand what is meant when ‘the mind’ is referred to throughout research. With some analysis of Cartesian, Godelian and Chomskian theories, these scholars debate what the bases of human cognition and mental representation could be. Each of the diverse lectures in this series is presented by a different scholar, and this publication contains the remarks and rebuttals that occurred in the presentation, accurately capturing the spirit and meaning of each argument.
KEY WORDS: mind, Cartesian, Chomsky, Godelian, consciousness, computer, behaviour, brain, intelligence, mental, cognition, dualism, reductionism, determinism, autonomy, language, goals
