Description - Matters of Mind by Scott Sturgeon

Matters of Mind is an exciting and challenging book that covers the topical areas in the mind-body problem. It shows how the problem has changed from the earlier theories of reduction to the dominant empirical cases for materialism. Scott Sturgeon argues that most positions are overdrawn, and that most hard-line views about materialism and dualism are unfounded. He offers a chapter by chapter analysis of the various debates surrounding the mind-body problem, including visual experience, consciousness, content and reason, reliabilism and the problem of Zombies and Ghosts. Matters of Mind will offer all its readers a clear and careful exploration of the mind-body problem. It will prove an invaluable source to those interested in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and cognitive science.
