Welcome to the Philosophy of Mind Task force, a subproject of WikiProject Philosophy.

Scope and Goals

The focus of the task force will be to work as diligently as is humanly possible to create professional-quality, thoroughly documented, and encyclopedic articles on the philosophy of mind and to integrate them as much as possible with work from all branches of the cognitive sciences: experimental psychology, neurosciences, linguistics, computer science, artificial intelligence, anthropology, ethology etc.

Philosophy of mind is a particularly challenging, but also exciting, field because much of its most important and groundbreaking work lies at the subtle confine between philosophy and science, between the humanities and rigorous scientific research. It attempts to bridge the gap between the so-called two cultures by creating a synthesizing third culture that includes and enhances the first two.

Philosophy of mind is a large and complex field. Indeed, a growing number of philosophers believe that the analytic tradition of philosophy is currently undergoing a shift from an emphasis on language to an emphasis on mind and its contents. The vast amount of information is too much for one or two people to handle. The coordinative effort of all those willing to assist is needed.
