10 Recommended Philosophy Of Mind Articles

Anderson Brown gives a really interesting list of 10 classic articles in the philosophy of mind which cover (a couple more than) 10 pivotal arguments.   I’ve heard of almost all of them and all the philosophers on the list are extremely famous, major contributors to the field.  I especially love this one article’s point:

1) Daniel Dennett, “Why the law of effect will not go away,” Journal of Social Behavior, 1978. The theory of natural selection is not a biological theory, it’s a proof of mathematical logic: not the kind of thing that could be “false.” Classic Dennett: simple as pie, closes the discussion. People think Dennett must be an overrated philosopher because of his success as a popular writer, but this is definitely an underrated article.
