About the Authors
  • E. J. Lowe offers a lucid and wide-ranging introduction to the philosophy of mind. Using a problem-centered approach designed to stimulate as well as instruct, he begins with a general examination of the mind-body problem and moves on to more specific issues including perception, rationality, action and self-knowledge. His discussion is distinctive in giving equal attention to deep metaphysical questions concerning the mind and to the discoveries and theories of modern scientific psychology. It will be of interest to any reader with a basic grounding in modern philosophy.

    • Broad range of topics covered
    • Strikes a welcome balance between metaphysical and scientific concerns
    • Very clearly and accessibly written

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Lowe packs a remarkable amount into each chapter...[T]his is probably the best book of its kind (on philosophy of mind in the broadest sense) that has ever been written." Brad Majors, Kansas State University, Review of Metaphysics

    "This book is an ideal textbook for upper-division undergraduate courses or for graduate level survey courses in the philosophy of mind. Any informed reader interested in learning more about the philosophy of mind should read it, and every college and university library should have it." Choice
