Are the mind and brain distinct? What is the connection between our physical brain and our mental thinking? On today’s episode, podcaster Pat Flynn concludes his conversation with the editors of the new book Minding the Brain: Models of the Mind, Information, and Empirical Science. After discussing an overview of the philosophy of mind and the range of physicalist perspectives in previous episodes, the editors now review the range of dualist views on the mind-body problem, including dualism, hylomorphism, and idealism. They also discuss the limitations of artificial intelligence and the challenges AI faces in understanding consciousness and creativity.
