Philosophy of Mind and Cognition

Philosophy of mind and cognition is a subfield of theoretical philosophy. Theoretical philosophy is concerned with general and fundamental questions about us human beings and the world surrounding us, such as What is there? (metaphysics), What can we know? (epistemology), What is meaning? (philosophy of language), What are laws? (philosophy of science), and What are numbers? (philosophy of mathematics). The philosophy of mind and cognition is concerned with all aspects of human, animal, and artificial minds and their relationship to physical or physiological processes in the brain, the body, and the environnent.
