This is a return to form for Nagel. Critical analysis of the flaws of philosophically trendy positions is where he has always been strongest.In many ways this book can be viewed as a sequel to his famous 'What is it like to be a bat?' essay in Mortal Questions as it explores the implications of accepting his rejection of a purely materialist/physicalist theory of mind for our scientific understanding of the world and moral philosophy.
