Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Defends a variety of the generally discredited theory that the mind is ontologically independent of the body; the theory is constrained by a token physicalist theory of mind, but presumes there are other human subjects. Describes and evaluates the motivation for internalism and externalism and comes up with the expected winner; explains how the theory can be reconciled with intuitively correct views on a subject's epistemic authority; and surveys specific psychological states. No index. Distributed in the US by Ashgate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
