Editorial Reviews

Review

Color has been a favorite example of philosophers ever since David Hume worried about the missing shade of blue, but most of their thought experiments, we can now see, have been misinformed. Thomson shows how current work in science on the nature of color and color vision transforms our philosophical vision of colors, clarifying (if not settling) new controversies while closing down old--and eternally tempting--confusions. Informed philosophical discussion about color begins here.
–Daniel C. Dennett, Tufts University

More About the Author

Evan Thompson was born in 1962 in Ithaca, NY, and grew up in Boston, New York, and Toronto. After 8 years as a Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Toronto, he moved in July 2013 to the Philosophy Department at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He writes about the mind, life, consciousness, and the self, from the perspectives of cognitive science, philosophy of mind, phenomenology, and cross-cultural philosophy (especially Buddhism and other Indian philosophical traditions). As a teenager, Evan was home-schooled in Southampton, NY and Manhattan at the Lindisfarne Association, an educational and contemplative community founded by his father, William Irwin Thompson. He received his A.B. in Asian Studies from Amherst College (1983), and his Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Toronto (1990).
