My concern is with philosophy of the mind AND/OR category theory. The latter being mathematics that uses a bit of philosophy in some applications. The former is about what we think IS the mind and all of the ways in which we can be wrong about that. While an attempt to be right may well lead to some recipes for the science most of PhilOfMind is about erasing the mistakes of cultural and biological bias. This enables us to cut the shit and get to the science. That is a bitter pill. The idea that we need philosophy to erase volumes of bad philosophy but there you have it. The shit will never quit churning around in the toilet bowl of the media and common mystique until we we philosophically remedy this shit by finding the final flush.
