What’s next

This week has focused on subjectivity, but a mind is more than a subject, it also feels like something to be a mind. This is conscious feeling or consciousness and is the second defining feature of a mind that we consider in Week 3. As we will discover, the mind is not straightforwardly synonymous with consciousness, sentience, and feeling.
