PHIL 14 UCSD Week 4 The Ned Block Mind and Brain Research Paper – Assignment Help

I need help with a Philosophy question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.

Select one of the options below and answer it. Your response must be between1500and1700words. Format your paper as outlined in the syllabus. You should provide a works cited page (not included in the word count).


Option 1.John Searle does not think that the mind is the software of the brain, while Ned Block thinks it is. In particular, John Searle denies that computation explains intentionality, while NedBlock thinks that computation explains intentionality (at least partially). Who is right? Clearly state a thesis that responds to this question and defend it. Then, consider one or two objections to your view that either John Searle or Ned Block would likely pose. Clearly explain the objection(s)and why it (they) would undermine your thesis. Respond.

Option 2.John Locke argues that psychological continuity accounts for the identity of persons over time. Do you agree with Locke? Clearly state a thesis that responds to this question and defend it. Then, consider one or two objections to your view (perhaps one that was considered in lecture or in the course texts). Clearly explain the objection(s) and why it (they) would undermine your thesis. Respond.


Tips: To gather your thoughts (as I noted in lecture), write down four very well thought-out sentences that follow this template:1. They say . . .2. I say . . . , because . . .3. One might reasonably object that . . .4. I reply that . . .From here, create an outline. Your short introductory paragraph should include your thesis statement (essentially #2 above). Then, you will likely need to reconstruct the view you are critiquing(expanding on #1). After that, you should develop the argument that you hinted at in #2. Finally, dedicate several paragraphs to your objections and replies (#3 and # 4).
