Abstract: In my thesis I attempt, on one hand, to classify some main problems of the philosophy of mind (as intentionality- the body mind problem- qualia and subjective experience of the world). Οn the other hand, I am trying to formulate a hypothesis for the naturalistic foundation of human mind and intelligence. The common field in this investigation, was the question of the meaning, in other words the mental content, or otherwise “how something means one thing and not something else”. 

Keywords: intentionality, emergent properties, mental content, meaning, downward causation
