What is a mind? is a free online course hosted by Professor Mark Solms from the Department of Neuropsychology. The six-week course is being offered again this year and starts on Monday, 31 October.
The course brings together perspectives from a range of disciplines to explore four specific aspects of the mind: subjectivity, intentionality, consciousness and agency. Together, these aspects help students to think about the fundamental questions: What is it to be a mind? and Why do we have a mind?
The course has garnered positive student reviews, with a highlight being Professor Solms’ weekly video responses to students’ questions. A team of mentors is also on hand to respond to queries in the course’s online discussion spaces, which tend to encourage fascinating conversations and insights.
Enrolment is open throughout the duration of the course.
