This is one of the best collections of articles about contemporary philosophy of mind. Together with Lycan's 'Mind and Cognition' and Rosenthal's 'The Nature of Mind' Block's 'Readings' put together what one could classify as a minimalist library on the topic. Many articles that have already become classics are here. If you intend to get serious about the philosophy of mind, go for these volumes.

This collection remains the best introduction to debates about the mind/body problem and the metaphysics of mind. It's a starting point: it contains the state of the art as of 1980. From here you could go to Jackson and Braddon-Mitchell's text, or Chalmer's anthology, for contemporary developments; but the best foundation is Block's anthology.
