This textbook provides an introduction to all the main themes and arguments currently being debated in the philosophy of mind. The book examines and criticizes four major theories of mind: dualism, mind/brain identity, behaviourism and functionalism. Maslin argues that whilst our mental lives depend upon physical processes in the brain, they are not reducible to these processes. Consciousness, and how it is to be accounted for, is also given extensive discussion as part of the mind/body debate. Maslin also discusses the differences between mental and physical states, mind/body causality, the problem of other minds, and personal identity. This book is designed to help students think for themselves about all the issues identified above, and contains exercises throughout the text to stimulate and challenge the reader. The book contains discussions of the most cited contemporary writers in the field, so that the reader can gain a rounded perspective of the debates. Objectives are clearly set out at the start of each chapter to enable students to check their understanding as they proceed, and questions to consider can be found at the end of each chapter. This textbook aims to include all the information, questions and features students will need to get them thinking laterally around this subject area. It should be of interest to A Level students and first-year undergraduates studying philosophy and philosophy of mind for the first time.
