This subject engages with a number of problems that have been central to the Western philosophical tradition. These are basic problems in what is called epistemology (the theory of knowledge) and metaphysics (the study of the nature of reality). They include: How, if at all, is knowledge possible? What is the relation between the mind and the body? Do we have free will?
