Philosophy of Mind : A Contemporary Introduction Paperback / softback
by John Heil
Part of the Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy series
The book is intended as a reader-friendly introduction to issues in the philosophy of mind, including mental-physical causal interaction, computational models of thought, the relation minds bear to brains, and assorted -isms: behaviorism, dualism, eliminativism, emergentism, functionalism, materialism, neutral monism, and panpsychism.
The Fourth Edition reintroduces a chapter on Donald Davidson and a discussion of `Non-Cartesian Dualism', along with a wholly new chapter on emergence and panpsychism.
A concluding chapter draws together material in earlier chapters and offers what the author regards as a plausible account of the mind's place in nature.
Suggested readings at the conclusion of each chapter have been updated, with a focus on accessible, non-technical material.
