From the Back Cover:

Reviews
'I think this is brilliant. In conception and execution, the anthology does something which is both original and needed as a teaching resource ... the editors motivate the philosophical questions in a fresh and illuminating way, with an excellent choice of readings based around problems which will have occurred to most thoughtful philosophy students.' - Tim Crane, University College London, UK

'Arguing About the Mind makes use of original sources to introduce problems in the philosophy of mind in a way calculated to be intelligible to readers with no previous background in philosophy. By relying on readings intended for a broad audience, Gertler and Shapiro deftly sidestep technical disputes of the kind that too often deter students encountering serious philosophical writing for the first time. The result is a stunning topical introduction to philosophy via the philosophy of mind.' - John Heil, Washington University in St Louis, USA

About the Author:

Brie Gertler is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Virginia, USA.

Larry Shapiro is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA.
