(1) Locke’s acceptance of Descartes’s view that there is a radical separation, a perhaps unbridgeable gap, between the world’s mental and its physical aspects. Locke’s view of (2) the cognitive aspects and (3) the conative aspects of the mind. (4) What Locke said about the possibility that ‘matter thinks’, i.e. that the things that take up space are also the ones that have mental states. (5) The question of whether all thought could be entirely caused by changes in the physical world. (6,7) What it is for a single mind to last through time. (8) What it is for a mind to exist at a time when it is not doing anything.|
