Topics in Metaphysics: Consciousness, Perception, and Agency

This is the remnant of the web page for APHI 612, “Topics in Metaphysics: Consciousness, Perception, and Agency” (course #10164), taught during the spring 2016 semester by Prof. Ron McClamrock of the UAlbany Philosophy Department.

Here’s the course description:

A seminar in some advanced topics in philosophy of mind. Focus will be on the interplay between views about consciousness and ones about (a) perception (including the tension between externalist or embodied accounts of mind and experiential views of perception), and (b) agency (including the tension between neurologically realistic accounts of mind and experiential and intentional views of agency). Some background in general philosophy of mind or philosophy of psychology will be helpful. Student work will include both seminar presentations and two short papers or one long one.
