First-Person Perspective and Other Essays by Sydney Shoemaker

Book Description

Sydney Shoemaker is one of the most influential philosophers currently writing on philosophy of mind and metaphysics. The essays in this collection deal with the way in which we know our own minds, and with the nature of those mental states of which we have our most direct conscious awareness. Professor Shoemaker opposes the 'inner sense' conception of introspective self-knowledge. He defends the view that perceptual and sensory states have non-representational features - 'qualia' - that determine what it is like to have them. Amongst the other topics covered are the unity of consciousness, and the idea that the 'first-person perspective' gives a privileged route to philosophical understanding of the nature of mind. This major collection is sure to prove invaluable to all advanced students of the philosophy of mind and cognitive science.

Physical Realization by Sydney Shoemaker Physical Realization, Paperback (August 2009)

Sydney Shoemaker considers the question of how physicalism can be true. His answer to this question involves showing how the mental properties of a person can be 'realized in' the physical properties of that person, and how all instantiations of properties in macroscopic objects can be realized in microphysical states of affairs.

Identity, Cause and Mind by Sydney Shoemaker Identity, Cause and Mind, Hardback (September 2003)

An expanded edition of Sydney Shoemaker's collection of his work on interrelated issues in the philosophy of mind and metaphysics. Reproducing all of the original papers, many of which are now regarded as classics, the book also includes four papers published since the first edition appeared.
