Description

What is the mind? Is consciousness a process in the brain? How do our minds represent the world? Philosophy of Mind: Classical and Contemporary Readings is a grand tour of writings on these and other perplexing questions about the nature of the mind. The most comprehensive collection of its kind, the book includes sixty-three selections that range from the classical contributions of Descartes to the leading edge of contemporary debates. Extensive sections cover foundational issues, the nature of consciousness, and the nature of mental content. Three of the selections are published here for the first time, while many other articles have been revised especially for this volume. Each section opens with an introduction by the editor. Philosophy of Mind is suitable for students at all levels and also for general readers.show more

Review quote

a splendid introduction to the subject ... offers an attractive, timely alternative to the more empirically engaged perspective of Lycan's Mind and Cognition. Teachers, students, and non-specialists looking for a comprehensive overview of issues in the general philosophy of mind, de-emphasizing empirical concerns, need look no further. Philip Robbins, Philosophical Psychologyshow more
