Review

Charles Taliaferro - Professor of Philosophy, St Olaf College, Minnesota"A splendid, highly accessible and lucid introduction. The arguments are engaging and provide a refreshing challenge to some of the conventional assumptions in the field."David Oderberg - Professor of Philosophy, University of Reading, UK"Tightly written and admirably clear... Fesar covers just the right topics, and does so judiciously and fairly... a refreshing, provocative, and important addition to the introductory books in philosophy of mind. It should appear on every reading list."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Feser probes many modern theories of mind from Cartesian dualism to eliminative materialism and shows what their strengths and weaknesses are. His conclusion, based on a classical approach, may not satisfy everyone, but he makes it hard to resist.

Format: Paperback
Edward Feser has once again produced a lucid, readable yet informative introduction to an extremely complex subject. He looks at both Dualism and Materialism from a critical angle and does although he writes from a thomistic perspective is careful to treat both sides of the debate equally.

Prompt arrival and book was in excellent condition. The writing was very clear and the exercises for each chapter were interesting and sharpened my understanding

Nicely set out with a relevant chapter on themes within the philosophy of mind, but the desperate defence of dualism makes this an uncomfortable and far from objective read.
The book fails to express the excitement of this area of philosophy largely because the author uses a far too strong demarcation between science and philosophy.

It might not be the most exciting of subjects, but this effort is one of the most poorly written philosophy books I've come across. The writer may have an understanding of the material, but he is unable here to put it across in a clear and interesting manner. I deleted it from my Kindle in frustration before I was halfway through.
