1 Review
This volume represents a vital resource - a new edition of the highly successful collection of classic and contemporary articles in philosophy of mind and cognition.


First published in 1990, Mind and Cognition: An Anthology is established as arguably the most popular teaching apparatus for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in the philosophy of mind. It provides the reader with an overview of the complex, sophisticated and sometimes conflicting developments in theories of mind that have taken place over the last 40 years, making available to students, teachers and researchers the very best and most influential contributions to the discipline.

Retaining the same successful format as the first edition, each updated section opens with a brief, synoptic introduction to the individual field and a comprehensive further reading list, followed by three to four of the most influential papers that have been written in the philosophy of mind over the last 40 years. Along with a new section on mental causation and completely revised subject and name indexes, the collection has been substantially revised throughout to bring the volume right up-to-date.
