Philosophy of mind is one of the most dynamic fields in philosophy, and one that invites debate around several key questions. There currently exist annotated tomes of primary sources, and a handful of single-authored introductions to the field, but there is no book that captures philosophy of mind’s recent dynamic exchanges for a student audience. By bringing compiling ten newly commissioned pieces in which leading philosophers square off on five central, related debates currently engaging the field, editor Uriah Kriegel has provided such a publication.The five debates include:
- Mind and Body: The Prospects for Russellian Monism
- Mind in Body: The Scope and Nature of Embodied Cognition
- Consciousness: Representationalism and the Phenomenology of Moods
- Mental Representation: The Project of Naturalization
- The Nature of Mind: The Importance of Consciousness.
Preliminary descriptions of each chapter, annotated bibliographies for each controversy, and a supplemental guide to further controversies in philosophy of mind (with bibliographies) help provide clearer and richer views of active controversies for all readers.
