How the mind works is an essential philosophical problem that forms the basis for a theory of knowledge. In this ready-to-go 45-minute jargon-free lesson, introduce your students to two famous theories - one touting that the mind is like a blank sheet of paper and the other that ideas are built-in to the mind like a muffin tin is pre-set with the shape of muffins (before you even bake 'em in the oven)! Which worldview makes the most sense? Introduce your students to this very important epistemological debate!
