Philosophy
Philosophy is the investigation of fundamental questions about the nature of knowledge, reality, and morals. It is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing these questions by its critical, generally systematic approach.

Philosophy interfaces with cognitive science in three distinct but related areas. First, there is the usual set of issues that fall under the heading of philosophy of science (explanation, reduction, etc.), applied to the special case of cognitive science. Second, there is the endeavor of taking results from cognitive science as bearing upon traditional philosophical questions about the mind, such as the nature of mental representation, consciousness, free will, perception, emotions, memory, etc. Third, there is what might be called theoretical cognitive science, which is the attempt to construct the foundational theoretical framework and tools needed to get a science of the physical basis of the mind off the ground — a task which naturally has one foot in cognitive science and the other in philosophy.
