Understand Philosophy of Mind
What is your mind?
How is it related to your body?
What does it mean to be a person and to be conscious?
What about artificial intelligence and information technology?
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.
While 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.
A new edition of this title was published at the end of August!
