Abstract: The purpose of this essay is to investigate how scholars considered the relationship between philosophy and neuroscience, by focusing both on a general point of view, and on the theme of consciousness. It then analyzes the thought of John Bickle, Patricia Churchland and Jesse Prinz with regard to their defence of the reductionist approach on one side and, on the other, that of Max Bennett, Peter Hacker and Alva Noë. This essay also aims at criticizing the claims of neuroscientific philosophers to dissolve the philosophical discourse by pointing out some key issues which are part and parcel of philosophy.
