"Mental episodes" is a term made popular by Wilfrid Sellars (correct me if I am wrong). I like to use it to cover mental states, events, and processes - they are of course different, but sometimes we want to talk about them without involving metaphysical implications immediately. I am interested in both the nature of mental episodes in general and the contents of my own mental episodes in particular. I predict that I will write about both of them here in the future, but I am not sure.
One kind of mental episodes I possess recently is pretended indifference to those postal rejections, by the way.
