5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By "zacharym87" on May 12, 2001
Format: Paperback
A fine reader on materilaist philosophy covering lots of ground and giving the patinet reader much to think about (as with most academic literature, the reader must slog through a dense thicket of jargon to get at the substance of the writing). Essays are included by advocates of non-reductive (everything reduces to physics in principal, but "special sciences" are needed to fully explain everyday phenomenon), reductive (everything can & should ultimately reduce to physics), and eliminative materialism (our current vocabulary of mental phenomenon should be completely replaced)as well as several critiques of materialism.
