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.

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.
