Next week: Intentionality

What's next

This week focused on consciousness and we also touched on the unconscious mind, however the mind is also intentional. The mind intends towards something, it aims towards something. The intentionality of the mind can be conscious or unconscious. You can have unconscious aims, unconscious intentions, and unconscious volitions. This is the topic of Week 4.

Now you’ve reached the end of Week 3, you might like to check your progress. You can also do this by selecting the Progress tab at the top of the step.
