Overview

The Phenomenological Mind is the first book to properly introduce fundamental questions about the mind from the perspective of phenomenology. Key questions and topics covered include: what is phenomenology?, naturalising phenomenology and the empirical cognitive sciences, phenomenology and consciousness, consciousness and self-consciousness, including perception and action, time and consciousness, including William James and Edmund Husser, intentionality, the embodied mind, action, knowledge of other minds, situated and extended minds, phenomenology and personal identity. Interesting and important examples are used throughout, including phantom limb syndrome, blindsight and self-disorders in schizophrenia, making The Phenomenological Mind an ideal introduction to key concepts in phenomenology, cognitive science and philosophy of mind.
