What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

“This is the most encompassing and up-to-date introduction to the philosophy of mind available today. Mandik has a gift for making technical debates accessible, and his engaging tour travels from the classic to the cutting edge.”

—Jesse Prinz, The Graduate Center, CUNY

“Is it possible to write a clear, even-handed, comprehensive, concise, and engaging guide to contemporary philosophy of mind—in less than 250 pages? I would not have thought so either. THANK YOU, Pete Mandik.”

—Kathleen Akins, Simon Fraser University
