Neural science represents an important bridge between the natural sciences concerned with the nature of the physical world and the arts and the humanities concerned with the nature of human existence. I will try to illustrate this bridging function in two ways. One, I will show that many neural scientists study the brain to address humanistically important questions about the mind first raised by classical philosophy. Second, in certain instances the artists and neural sciences use common methodologies to achieve their respective goals.
