Editorial Reviews


Introducing Persons is an excellent book--an unfailingly lucid and succinct introduction to the philosophy of mind, rigorously argued, comprehensive and up-to-date . . . the clearest and fullest presentation of the materialist's case available today.
Times Literary Supplement, 1987

Simple and straight forward enough to be accessible to the beginning student, yet his arguments have enough originality to interest the old hand.
Philosophical Quarterly, 1988

Carruthers has written a clear and interesting book which captures much of the excitement and difficulty of the problems he discusses. Its effect may well be to lead a sharper-focused scepticism about some of the currently fashionable views which he adopts. This in itself is no small achievement.
Philosophical Books, 1988 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
