    Good Intro to Philosophical Psychology and Cognitive Science

    I'm an undergraduate student in Cognitive Science and I think this book provides a really good introduction to the major philosophical issues involved in Psychology and Cognitive Science. Flanagan discusses at length dualism, James, Freud, behavorism, Piaget, cog science/artificial intelligence, sociobiology, and offers the beginnings for a theory of consciousness. The book is a bit lacking in its discussion of epiphenominalism, but is overall a great introductory text for a beginning college student or interested adult.

    Great for the individual or college coursework

    This was a required book in a graduate course I took (advanced general psychology). It is a must read for anyone interested in the mind/body problem. It starts with Descartes and runs through the present approaches. It is very philosophical in its treatment of the scientific approaches to the mind/body question. It is also very thorough and accurate in its explainations of difficult material. Its longest sections deal with artificial intelligence(AI). Many AI views are covered in a scientific manner but not to the point the more philosophical reader would loss interest. It has good sections also on behaviorism and sociobilogy.
