Description

Shaun Gallagher is a philosopher of mind who has made it his business to study and meet with leading neuroscientists, including Michael Gazzaniga, Marc Jeannerod and Chris Frith. The result is this unique introduction to the study of the mind, with topics ranging over consciousness, emotion, language, movement, free will and moral responsibility. The discussion throughout is illustrated by lengthy extracts from the author's many interviews with his scientist colleagues on the relation between the mind and the brain.

Review quote

"In a philosophical journey, Gallagher explores our understanding of how thoughts, actions and mental states can be generated by brains, and the ways philosophy, neuroscience and cognitive science collaborate in making sense of it all... This fascinating and insightful book is... speculative in all the right ways, mirroring minds and thoughts, and the ways of science itself."

--Chris McManus, University College London
