The philosophy of mind is generally concerned with the following two types of questions— epistemologicalandmetaphysical. The epistemologicalquestions are the questions about what we can know when it comes to the mind. These epistemologicalquestions include questions about (a) how we can know about the mental states of others, (b) how we can know about our own mental states, and (c) the nature of these forms of knowledge. Metaphysicalquestions are concerned with the fundamental structure of the mind. The problem that has dominated the philosophy of mind over the last three centuries or so, and which will provide the basis of these notes, is a metaphysical one: the mind-body problem. This paper is an attempt to answer these questions.
