Synopsis

Philosophy of Mind introduces readers to one of the liveliest fields in contemporary philosophy by discussing mind-body problems and the various solutions to them. It provides a detailed yet balanced overview of the entire field that enables readers to jump immediately into current debates.

  • Treats a wide range of mind-body theories and arguments in a fair and balanced way
  • Shows how developments in neuroscience, biology, psychology, and cognitive science have impacted mind-body debates
  • Premise-by-premise arguments for and against each position enable readers to grasp the structure of each argument quickly and easily
  • Diagrams and illustrations help readers absorb the more complex ideas
  • Bibliographic essays at the end of each chapter bring readers up to date on the latest literature
  • Written in a clear, easy to read style that is free of technical jargon, and highly accessible to a broad readership 
  • The only book to explain systematically how a hylomorphic theory such as Aristotle’s can contribute to current mind-body debates and vie with current mind-body theories
  • Online chapters on free will and the philosophy of persons make the book a flexible teaching tool for general and introductory philosophy courses - available at www.wiley.com/go/jaworski
