Editorial Reviews


"It would be amiss not to commend Philosophical History and the Problem of Consciousness for its deft description of the details and differentiations of the various analytic theories of mind and its adroit articulation of the methodological and theoretical tenets of analytic accounts of consciousness." Majid Amini, Virginia State University

Book Description

The problem of explaining consciousness today remains a problem about the meaning of language: the ordinary language of consciousness in which we define and express our sensations, thoughts, dreams and memories. This book argues that the contemporary problem arises from a quest that has taken shape over the 20th century, and that the analysis of history provides new resources for understanding and resolving it.Paul Livingston traces the development of the characteristic practices of analytic philosophy to problems about the relationship of experience to linguistic meaning.
