Mind / Edition 1 available in Paperback
Aimed at readers with little or no previous knowledge of formal philosophy, this volume introduces some of the primary topics connected with the mind, such as the soul, animals and machines, subjectivity, intentionality and behavior, and reason and causes. Rather than parade the great minds of Western philosophy before the reader in chronological order, Matthews (affiliation not given) examines their ideas in the context of specific topics. Matthews endeavors to articulate both sides of each philosophical argument but does not shrink from presenting his own point of view. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
