It will prove invaluable for those interested in epistemology, philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

Editorial Reviews


The six chapters of this well-written book can be read separately, or as a unity leading to Sturgeon's "Wait-and-See view" in the mind-body debate.' - Journal of Consciousness Studies

5.0 out of 5 stars Honest Take April 20, 2001
By A Customer
I like this book because Sturgeon gives readers what few in the high court of academic philosophy would ever dare to: the unadorned truth. In general, philosophers have made a muddle of these mysteries of the mind, but Sturgeon sorts it our nicely, and with style and readability that few in his field can match. The technical aspects will be daunting for lay readers, especially the highly original examination of ideas across different disciplines, and how they relate. But this is a work of the highest order, and it will be remembered and heavily referenced for many, many years to come.
