Should the strike on the Underground go ahead, the meeting will finish at 9.00.
Continuing with our mind and body theme, and developing some of the ideas from the Descartes and Ryle reading from January, the first reading for February is Rudolf Carnap 'Psychology in Physical Language'. The other reading is a rejoinder to both Ryle (Chap. 1 of 'The Concept of Mind') and Carnap. It is Hilary Putnam 'Brains and Behaviour'. Both Carnap and Putnam, and many others, are included in the comprehensive reader The Philosophy of Mind, edited by David J. Chalmers. (Around £25). This reader is also likely to be a useful source as we further explore this theme.
If you don't want to buy the Chalmers reader, then the original place of publication for the Putnam is R. Butler (ed.) Analytical Philosophy: Second Series (1968). [the date is important]. Various offers on Abebooks for around £3-5. The Carnap is here on the web (http://people.su.se/~snce/texter/carnapPsych.pdf).
