10. It is interesting that you think that philosophy is fluffy.

How would you approach the teaching of mathematical logic? Would you start with its purely abstract form or would you start with early attempts at developing logical systems and work forward from there? How would you address the differences between rationalism and empiricism without discussing philosophy? Science clearly depends upon an amalgam of the two with empirical results being the arbiter of what is "true", but how do you describe the scientific method without resorting to treating it purely as another dogmatic orthodoxy if philosophy is unconsidered?

Also, do you think that previously done psychological studies will not be useful in motivating future research in neurophysiology and cognitive research? How would one become aware of the psychology literature without studying psychology?
