Nothing in the universe is more mysterious than the inner workings
of the human mind.
Do other people have a mind like yours and, if so, how do you know?
Is your mind something distinct from your body, or do ordinary
physiological processes produce minds?
Can a machine have a mind?
What is consciousness?
Do you have free will?
Is everything you are now experiencing actually happening, or is that an
elaborate illusion created by the mind?
The mind reels at such questions! But philosophy provides powerful tools
for investigating the mysteries of thinking, feeling, and perceiving.
