Content, Consciousness and Perception: Essays in Contemporary Philosophy of Mind
Content, Consciousness and Perception: Essays in Contemporary Philosophy of Mind
Content, Consciousness and Perception is an edited collection, comprising eleven new contributions to the philosophy of mind, written by some of the most promising young philosophers in the UK and Ireland. The book is arranged into three parts. Part I, “Concepts and Mental Content”, which begins with an attack by Hans-Johann Glock on the representational theory of mind, addresses the nature of mental representation. Part II, “Consciousness and the Metaphysics of Mind”, concerns the prospects for a naturalistic metaphysics of the conscious mind. Finally, Part III, entitled “Perception”, pursues the project of giving a satisfactory philosophical account of perceptual experience.

The book begins with an introductory essay by the editors, which provides an overview of the state of contemporary philosophy of mind, locating the articles to follow within that context.

The individual chapters of Content, Consciousness and Perception are professional contributions to their respective areas, of interest to any philosopher of mind. The volume as a whole is ideal for non-specialists and students interested in getting to grips with the state of the art in contemporary philosophy of mind.

Abstract

Content, Consciousness and Perception is an edited collection, comprising eleven new contributions to the philosophy of mind, written by some of the most promising young philosophers in the UK and Ireland. The book is arranged into three parts. Part I, “Concepts and Mental Content”, which begins with an attack by Hans-Johann Glock on the representational theory of mind, addresses the nature of mental representation. Part II, “Consciousness and the Metaphysics of Mind”, concerns the prospects for a naturalistic metaphysics of the conscious mind. Finally, Part III, entitled “Perception”, pursues the project of giving a satisfactory philosophical account of perceptual experience.

The book begins with an introductory essay by the editors, which provides an overview of the state of contemporary philosophy of mind, locating the articles to follow within that context.

The individual chapters of Content, Consciousness and Perception are professional contributions to their respective areas, of interest to any philosopher of mind. The volume as a whole is ideal for non-specialists and students interested in getting to grips with the state of the art in contemporary philosophy of mind.
