Mind Unmasked : A Political Phenomenology of Consciousness (Paperback) (Michael Weinstein & Timothy
About this item
The human mind has proven uniquely capable of unraveling untold mysteries, and yet, the mind is fundamentally challenged when it turns back on itself to ask what it itself is. How do we understand mind in this postmodern world; how can we use philosophical anthropology to understand mind and its functions? While philosophers like Husserl and Whitehead have made enormous contributions to our understanding of mind, their theories are insufficient for penetrating the complexities of mind in the 21st century.
A New Philosophy of Consciousness draws on 20th century philosophies of consciousness to explain the phenomenon of mind in the broadest sense of the word. Michael A. Weinstein and Timothy M. Yetman develop a thought provoking discourse that moves beyond the nature of the human experience of mind at both the individual and interpersonal levels and present a meditation on life in the contemporary world of global mass-mediated human culture.
