Description
What is the origin of our universe? What is our role in the universe as human beings capable of knowledge? What makes us intelligent cognitive agents seemingly endowed with consciousness? This volume introduces these questions and more. It begins by asking what good is philosophy for the sciences before examining the origins of our universe; dark matter and dark energy; anthropic reasoning in philosophy and cosmology; evolutionary theory and the human mind; intelligent machines and the human brain; and embodied cognition and the sciences of the mind.
