New Blog: Issues in the philosophy of mind and cogsci
A few days ago I came across a recently started blog called "Issues in the Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science". Written by a final year Philosophy and Cognitive Science student, Jack Josephy (see here for some other articles he's written), at the University of Sussex, it currently only has a few posts, but each looks at some of the philosophical issues involved in each of the post topics. So far, there are posts on intelligence, the nature/nurture debate, and machine consciousness. I particularly like the central emphasis he places on embodiment, something which I place great importance on.
