This text is an introduction to the philosophy of mind that rejects the dualist approach associated with people such as Descartes, and it also casts doubts on the forms of materialism that now dominate English language philosophy. The book draws, in particular, on the work of Wittgenstein to look at the importance of the notion of a human being in our thought about ourselves and others.
