Originally published in 1988 as a single-volume hardback edition, Mind and Brain and The Consequences of Determinism consider the three principal issues of the philosophy of mind: the exact nature of the relation between mental and neural events; how both sorts of events come about; and their relation to actions. The answers that Honderich provides in Volume I constitute a new determinist philosophy of mind. He proceeds in Volume II to explore the consequences of that position, considering what the truth of determinism means for, among other things, our life-hopes, our attitudes towards others, and our view of moral responsibility.
