Arguing About the Mind is an accessible, engaging introduction to the core questions in the philosophy of mind. This collection offers a selection of thought-provoking articles that examine a broad range of issues from the mind and body relation to animal and artificial intelligence. Topics addressed include:

  • the problem of consciousness
  • the nature of the mind
  • the relationship between the mind, body and world
  • the notion of selfhood
  • pathologies and behavioural problems
  • animal, machine and extra-terrestrial intelligence.

The editors provide lucid introductions to each section, give an overview of the debate and outline the arguments of the papers. An original and stimulating reader, Arguing About the Mind is ideal for students new to the philosophy of mind.
