This seminar will consider a variety of issues raised by the use of neuroscientific evidence in legal proceedings. At least 5 sessions will be devoted to the philosophical issues raised by claims about the nature of mind and brain, the nature of knowledge, and similar philosophical themes. We shall also consider the evidentiary issues raised by neuroscience as well as issues in criminal law. The format of the seminar is assigned readings and discussion each week.
