Editorial Reviews


' ... unusually good of its kind ... The book has an impressive range and at least two, sometimes three, contrasting theories of each phenomenon are given full exposition and discussion. The richness of debate is thereby very well conveyed, and the books' systematic and sympathetic discussions are exemplary.' The Times Literary Supplement

'This is not 'philosophy made easy'. It is a very clever book indeed.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description

Format: Paperback
This book offers a clear and well written introduction to a difficult topic. Reading it can be a rewarding experience as it explains the most important problems of the philosophy of mind with a clear language. The only problem that I could find in it is that it doesn't pursuit the consecuences of their functionalist theory in the last chapters; instead they try to give some "non-standard" definition of freedom, which is not at all clear or even near of the common concept of that word.
