Understand Philosophy of Mind

cover

These and many other issues are explored in Understand the Philosophy of Mind, which looks at ideas about the mind, from ancient Greece to present day cognitive science. It explores memory, free will and knowledge of other minds, and considers issues relating the mind to religion and artistic creativity.

No previous knowledge of the subject is required; all terms are fully explained.


mugWhile this book attempts to give an overview of the subject, my own personal view of the self and how it develops and gives us character is developed in the book entitled 'ME'. 

If you look on the general section on the Philosophy of Mind you will see that this is a lively area of philosophical debate.  So, if you are using the old edition of Philosophy of Mind, be aware that it is now getting a bit dated.
