The Phenomenological Mind is the first book to properly introduce fundamental questions about the mind from the perspective of phenomenology. Key questions and topics covered include:
- What is phenomenology?
- naturalizing phenomenology and the empirical cognitive sciences
- phenomenology and consciousness
- consciousness and self-consciousness, including perception and action
- time and consciousness, including William James
- the embodied mind
- knowledge of other minds
- situated and extended minds
- phenomenology and personal identity
Interesting and important examples are used throughout, including phantom limb syndrome, blindsight and self-disorders in schizophrenia, making The Phenomenological Mind an ideal introduction to key concepts in phenomenology, cognitive science and philosophy of mind.
