Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book involves an admirable attempt to find a common ground with physicalist theories of human nature by phenomonological descriptions of knowing, feeling, and acting that dissolve mentalism. At the same time, it criticizes physicalist theories via a kind of transcendental argument since such theories overlook while presupposing the phenomenon of presence. Thus it draws well on the traditions of descriptive and transcendental phenomenology." Michael Barber, the Modern Schoolman

Book Description

Drawing on certain basic ideas of Heidegger, this text presents an alternative to the debate waged between dualists and materialists in the philosophy of mind. It involves changing the way we usually think about "mental" life and breaking down familiar contrasts between the "physical" and the "psychological."

12 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Louis Berger on May 19, 1999
Format: Paperback
A valuable and complex critique of basic assumptions that tacitly underlie standard psychological frameworks--the inside/outside distinction, "mind" as "containing" representations, etc. The critique is also extended to orthodox views of language and to widely accepted physicalist views on the mind-body problem. Less successful is his constructive proposal for alternative approaches. The critique, however, is invaluable on its own and will repay careful repeated reading and study. It is not an easy read, certainly not the first or second time through, but well worth an extended effort. I have lived with this book for some years now and continue to profit from revisiting it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A superb analysis of human existence from a Heideggerian perspective. Those who struggle with Being and Time may benefit from reading Olafson's book first.
