Teacher tips

This page contains suggestions and pointers for professors and instructors teaching the philosophy of mind. (If you are a student and have accidentally started reading this page, you might want to stop now before you permanently blow your own mind.)

This blog is home to the Philosophy of Mind MetaResource, a guide to online dictionary entries and encyclopedia articles on key terms in philosophy of mind.

One of the main ways for finding your way around the resources archived in this blog is via the various label links used in categorizing the blog posts. Besides topical labels (e.g. artificial intelligence, dualism), there are various labels that should be of special interest to the teachers:

  • First, there are labels collecting various instructional materials: Syllabi, Paper topics, and Exam questions.
  • Second, there are labels collecting key media types: Video, Further reading, and Pictures.
  • Third, there is the Empirical science label. Perhaps more so than many other areas of philosophy, the philosophy of mind cultivates many rich connections to work in the pertinent empirical sciences, especially psychology, neuroscience, linguistics, and computer science. Blog posts bearing the Empirical science label will highlight such connections.
  • Fourth and finally, there is the general Teaching tips label.
