Rate this:
Philosopher John Searle explores various perspectives on the mind which he believes are all flawed, including behaviorism and identity theory, then discusses functionalism, which he says is essentially a combination of the other two. According to functionalism, every mental state is a state of the brain, defined not in terms of its neurobiological features but in terms of its causal relations. Professor Searle states that functionalism is accepted by the majority of philosophers today.
