A timely collection of debates concerning the major themes and topics in philosophy of mind, fully updated with new topics covering the latest developments in the field
Contemporary Debates in Philosophy of Mind provides a lively and engaging introduction to the conceptual background, ongoing debates, and contentious issues in the field today. Original essays by more than 30 of the discipline's most influential thinkers offer opposing perspectives on a series of contested questions regarding mental content, physicalism, the place of consciousness in the physical world, and the nature of perception and mental capacities.
Written to appeal to non-specialists and professional philosophers alike, the second edition of Contemporary Debates in Philosophy of Mind features five entirely new debates on the relation between perception and cognition, whether pain is a natural kind, whether perception is best understood through representational content or direct contact with the world, whether we need imagination that goes beyond imagery and supposition, and whether perceptual contents are general, particular, or a hybrid.
* Presents 15 sets of specially commissioned essays with opposing viewpoints on central topics in philosophy of mind
* Offers head-to-head debates on central topics such as consciousness, intentionality, normativity, mental causation, materialism, and perception
* Provides a dynamic view of contemporary thinking about fundamental and controversial issues
* Includes a thorough introduction providing a comprehensive background to the issues explored in each debate
