A mind is a terrible thing to waste. It's also a very difficult thing to understand. How can there be room for conscious beings in a world apparently composed of physical stuff and governed by physical laws? Are minds supernatural entities, souls that lie beyond the reach of science? Or are minds just very complicated physical structures? What is the relationship between psychology and physics, or psychology and computer science? Could a properly designed computer think? Could it experience emotion? This course - properly designed and loaded with emotion - will help you and your mind attempt to find plausible answers to fundamental questions.
