Real Materialism draws together papers written over twenty years by Galen Strawson in philosophy of mind and metaphysics. Strawson focuses on five main areas of enquiry: [1] the nature of the physical, consciousness, the "mind-body problem," and the prospects for panpsychism; [2] the self, the subject of experience, self-consciousness, and the 'narrative' self; [3] free will and moral responsibility; [4] the nature of thought and intentionality and their connection with consciousness; [5] the problem of causation with particular reference to the philosophy of David Hume.

Review:


"The main appeal of the book...lies in the lively and undoubtedly intelligent contrarianism of its author, who provides abundant challenges to widely?held views, especially in the philosophy of mind, and in his large philosophical ambitions."-- Andrew Melnyk, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
