Philosophy and Neuroscience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The picture of philosophy we obtain from contemporary naturalism is that of a kind of “ancilla scientiarum”: philosophy adopts scientific methods and procedures, its nature is a posteriori as that of the sciences. In this essay I intend to examine whether these results necessarily derive from the recent development of neuroscience, or if there are other plausible ways of conceiving the relationship between philosophy and neuroscience.
