This is the only contemporary text to cover both epistemology and philosophy of mind at an introductory level. It also serves as a general introduction to philosophy: it discusses the nature and methods of philosophy as well as basic logical tools of the trade.

The book is divided into three parts. The first focuses on knowledge, in particular, skepticism and knowledge of the external world, and knowledge of language. The second focuses on mind, including the metaphysics of mind and freedom of will. The third brings together knowledge and mind, discussing knowledge of mind (other minds and our own) and naturalism and how epistemology and philosophy of mind come together in contemporary cognitive science. Throughout, the authors take into account the needs of the beginning philosophy student. They have made very effort to ensure accessibility while preserving accuracy.

Review:

This book is written with just the right style and pace. It is admirably comprehensive and well-organized.

Robert M. Martin, Department of Philosophy, Dalhousie University (Endorsement)

This book is very clearly written, presenting complex issues in a way that does not over-simplify them, yet does them justice.

Don Ross, University of Cape Town, South Africa (Endorsement)
