'... a very thorough volume: almost every topic falling under the mind/body problem is taken up and addressed in an up-to-date fashion.' -- Professor William G. Lycan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This is a fully revised and updated edition of David Braddon-Mitchell and Frank Jacksonrsquo;s popular and respected introduction to philosophy of mind and cognition. The revisions are designed to make the volume even more useful for teachers and students, and to keep it current, ensuring that the most recent developments in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science are brought together into a coherent, accessible whole. New material includes: a section on some of Descartesrsquo; famous objections to materialism along with a discussion of the objection from Gouml;del's theorem; substantial additions to the discussion of qualia including a discussion of representationalist accounts of experience and of the zombie argument; additional coverage of the view that psychology is autonomous; a new substantial chapter on connectionism and its bearing on the language of thought debate; and much more.
