Gilbert Ryle, The Concept of Mind The aim of this course is to read and investigate Ryle?s classic work on mind. We will be open to interpretations which reject the view that Ryle is a behaviourist and which treat his theory as having a much wider conception of action than just bodily behaviour. We will also examine the influence of Ryle on contemporary debate in the philosophy of mind, particularly in the functionalism of Daniel Dennett.
