    Eliminative materialism is the view that in order to recognize and describe what exists in the world, it is necessary to eliminate anything mental, such as the mind, mental states and mental properties. In addition, eliminative materialism stresses on the assumption that folk psychology is an outdated theory that must be eliminated, as behaviours are neurological processes and not caused by mental states. In this paper, I will be criticizing eliminative materialism by explaining the importance of folk psychology as how it is necessary to understand mental states and decisions during certain situations. Folk psychology is the theory in which it explains the behaviours of humans and nonhumans according to their beliefs, desires and other propositional…

    The approaches we’ve discussed in this course in regard to action, the causal approach and the qualitative approach, are each worthy of fierce debate. Despite the persuasiveness of each, I believe there is one that is slightly more attractive than the other. Charles Taylor characterized these two general approaches as looking for an answer to, “what is the nature of action? Or otherwise put, what distinguishes (human) action from other kinds of events” (Taylor, pg. 77-78)? Personally, I find…

    Do people have propositional attitudes? How does the form cognitive science should take depend on the answer to this question? “We have no idea of how to explain ourselves to ourselves except in a vocabulary which is saturated with belief/desire psychology. One is tempted to transcendental argument: What Kant said to Hume about physical objects holds, mutatis mutandis, for the propositional attitudes; we can't give them up because we don't know how to. ” (source, Fodor) Propositional attitudes…

    Persuasion isn’t all about being forceful, manipulative, or pushy, but about using subtle tactics to persuade people to do what you want while wanting to do it themselves.
