You Are Your Brain

This is a lovely video concerning the subject in the previous post, i.e. the relationship between the brain and the mind. This video does a good job of bringing up the issue of the category error. For instance, if you visit Penn State University and walk around and see the library, the residence halls, the academic buildings, the athletic facilities, etc., but then ask "But where is Penn State University?" then you are making a category error. There is no Penn State University apart from all of these things which comprise it.

Thanks to Magnus for passing on this clip. Cheerio.
