'... provocative and invigorating, and at the same time both metaphysically satisfying and empirically well informed. This is an elegant and powerful book that philosophers of mind would do well to read and reread carefully.' John Heil, The Times Literary Supplement
In this innovative study E. J. Lowe demonstrates the inadequacy of physicalism, even in its mildest, non-reductionist guises, as a basis for a scientifically and philosophically acceptable account of human beings as subjects of experience, thought and action. He shows how an attribution of independent causal powers to the mental states of human subjects is perfectly consistent with a thoroughly natural world view, and examines the role which conscious mental states play in the human subject's exercise of its most central capacities for perception, action, thought and self-knowledge.
