The Human Mind Project

How does the human mind work? If we mean by this more than its basic functions, then we are looking not only at the sciences to find our answers but to a truly interdisciplinary collaboration including science, humanities, and the arts.

The Human Mind Project will do just this. Launched on 12 December 2014 by the Institute of Philosophy , a member institute of the School, this ambitious project represents a coordinated, international effort to define the major intellectual challenges in understanding the nature and significance of the human mind, and thus the nature of how we think, feel, communicate and interact.
