Paper details:

This unit is all about the nature of the mind. One of the biggest questions is whether the mind is physical or not. There are plenty of reasons to think it is physical–based on brain studies for example–but there is also reason to think it is not–such as the difficulty of reducing conscious experience to physical terms.

Even if the mind is physical, there are multiple theories about what exactly it is. Are mental states just special kinds of physical states? Are they functional states, realized in physical brains? Or is our entire way of thinking about it wrong?
