Product Description

Review

John Heil’s book is the very best of its kind and is a masterly achievement, managing to stay clear, accessible and engaging without sacrificing either intellectual rigor or philosophical depth. The new additions bring readers right up to date with the latest trends and ideas.

-E. J. Lowe, Durham University

Heil’s introduction encourages students to engage the philosophy of mind with the penetrating attitude of a true metaphysician. This third edition features new content, including the topic of panpsychism, which has enjoyed renewed interest from philosophers of mind. These new materials are presented with the same ontological seriousness and accessibility that has made previous editions so attractive. Anyone teaching the philosophy of mind using a previous edition of Heil’s text will find this latest edition a worthy update to their course.

-Joseph A. Baltimore, West Virginia University

By R. Newton on 2 Jan. 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is a very good introduction to philosophy of mind, in parts. As a general introduction it is very good. There are parts which explain things more clearly than any other similar textbook I have read (e.g. Kim's philosophy of mind). But it is not a deep as Kim's book and the coverage is not as thorough - for example I found nothing on anomalous monism, which I would have thought was a fairly central part of contemporary philosophy of mind. Additionally, the last two chapters, which whilst being interesting, seemed out of place. Whilst chapters 1-11 are a general unbiased introduction, chapters 12-13 are Heil's own views on philosophy of mind. I suspect this is just a personal view, but I prefer philosophy books to either contain a specific argument from the writer or to be a reference source of both sides of the main arguments in any specific area - combining the two in one book does not work for me. But you could do far worse than this book if you want a reasonably deep, yet relatively easy to get into introduction to philosophy of mind.
