    Cognitive science is all about the mind.

    The mind? Hmm... I think it's more to do with the neurological correlates
    of behaviours, emotions, decision making, even morality (see the fascinating paper

    As far as the mind goes, I think probably follow Dennett in not believing it
    exists. To pursue your chess analogy, it's like looking at the chess pieces
    but then asking to see the chess set. (c.f. Ryle's man who wanders around
