Description



Book Synopsis



The philosophy of mind is one of the fastest-growing areas in philosophy, not least because of its connections with related areas of psychology, linguistics and computation. This Companion is an alphabetically arranged reference guide to the subject, firmly rooted in the philosophy of mind, but with a number of entries that survey adjacent fields of interest.

The book is introduced by the editor's substantial Essay on the Philosophy of Mind which serves as an overview of the subject, and is closely referenced to the entries in the Companion. Among the entries themselves are several "self-profiles" by leading philosophers in the field, including Chomsky, Davidson, Dennett, Dretske, Fodor, Lewis, Searle and Stalnaker, in which their own positions within the subject are articulated. In some more complex areas, more than one author has been invited to write on the same topic, giving a polarity of viewpoints within the book's overall coverage.

All main entries have a full bibliography, and the book is indexed to the high standards set by other volumes in the Blackwell Companions to Philosophy series.



From the Back Cover



The philosophy of mind is one of the fastest-growing areas in philosophy, not least because of its connections with related areas of psychology, linguistics and computation. This Companion is an alphabetically arranged reference guide to the subject, firmly rooted in the philosophy of mind, but with a number of entries that survey adjacent fields of interest.

Written by an international assembly of the leading philosophers, the volume includes extensive cross-referencing, glossary entries, detailed bibliographies, and a comprehensive index. Among the entries themselves are series of 'self-profiles' by key figures of today, including Noam Chomsky, Donald Davidsion, Daniel Dennett, Fred Dretske, Jerry Fodor, David Lewis, Hilary Putnam, John Searle, and Robert Stalnaker.



Review Quotes




"Overall, A Companion to the Philosophy of Mind is a world-leading resource to guide students and teachers through this challenging but highly rewarding subject." (Economics & Philosophy Blogspot, 1 August 2013)

'Guttenplan's extended and well-written introductory essay stands on its own as a fine introduction to current philosophy of mind.' -- The Times Literary Supplement
