Clumsy title, I know.
Now, I want to study the mind. I have read a helluva lot on the subject and have come around to the opinion that the mind is a product of a brain which has been selected for in evolutionary terms - thus we can't study the mind without studying the biology behind the brain. So from being into 'psychoananlysis' (the follies of being fifteen!) and the philosophy of the mind, I have shifted onto Leda Cosmides' and EO Wilson's Evolutionary Psychology. So if I want to study the mind, should I study:
Philosophy (its the "cognitive scientists" like Fodor or Denett who appeal to me)
What do you reckon?

I don't know much about any of these things but I've come across masters courses in cognitive anthropology, which sounds really interesting. Not sure if you can do undergraduate courses in the UK in this, but might be worth researching.

I'd go for neuroscience personally
