Philosophy of mind is a sub-discipline that has become prominent within the analytic tradition of philosophy. It tends to focus on questions that arise concerning the nature of consciousness and its relation to the understanding of the world presented in physics and more recently with results of research in neuroscience and artificial intelligence. Traditionally questions about the relation between the mind and body, what guarantees personal identity across time and how we can know other minds have played a prominent role.
