In daily life we take it for granted that our minds have conscious control of our actions, at least for most of the time. But many scientists and philosophers deny that this is really the case, because there is no generally accepted theory of how the mind interacts with the body. Max Velmans presents a non-reductive solution to the problem, in which 'conscious mental control' includes ‘voluntary’ operations of the preconscious mind. On this account, biological determinism is compatible with experienced free will. Velmans’ theory is put to the test by nine critics: Ron Chrisley, Todd Feinberg, Jeffrey Gray, John Kihlstrom, Sam Rakover, Ramakrishna Rao, Aaron Sloman, Steve Torrance and Robert Van Gulick.

About the Author:

Max Velmans is Reader in Psychology at Goldsmith's College.

Review:

"What Velmans establishes with his argument is that the old mind-body problem is not a problem - the distinction is merely one of perspective."

(Metapsychology)

"Reflects the state of the art in consciousness studies."

(Network)

"This is a thorough book well worth close reading. Highly recommended."

(Human Nature Review)

"The volume is full of interesting arguments and provides a manageable and at times amusing introduction to a classic argument."

(Susan Blackmore Times Higher Education Supplement)
