Contents of Experience by Tim Crane
Book DescriptionThe nature of perception has long been a central question in philosophy. It is of crucial importance not just in the philosophy of mind, but also in epistemology, metaphysics, aesthetics, and the philosophy of science. The essays in this 1992 volume not only offer fresh answers to some of the traditional problems of perception, but also examine the subject in light of contemporary research on mental content. A substantial introduction locates the essays within the recent history of the subject, and demonstrates the links between them. The Contents of Experience brings together some prominent philosophers in the field, and offers a major statement on a problem central to current philosophical thinking. Notable contributors include Christopher Peacocke, Brian O'Shaughnessy and Michael Tye.

Books By Author Tim Crane
Objects of Thought, Paperback (October 2015)
Tim Crane addresses the ancient question of how it is possible to think about what does not exist, arguing that the representation of the non-existent is a pervasive feature of our thought about the world, and that to understand thought's representational power ('intentionality') we need to understand the representation of the non-existent.
Aspects of Psychologism, Hardback (January 2014)
Deals with fundamental philosophical questions of consciousness, perception, and the experience of our own mental lives. The author investigates the mind not only empirically and conceptually but also phenomenologically: through the systematic examination of consciousness and thought from the subject's point of view.
