In this book Jonathan Lowe offers a lucid and wide-ranging introduction to the philosophy of mind. Using a problem-centred approach designed to stimulate as well as instruct, he begins with a general examination of the mind-body problem and moves on to detailed examination of more specific philosophical issues concerning sensation, perception, thought and language, rationality, artificial intelligence, action, personal identity and self-knowledge. His discussion is notably broad in scope, and distinctive in giving equal attention to deep metaphysical questions concerning the mind and to the discoveries and theories of modern scientific psychology. It will be of interest to any reader with a basic grounding in modern philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lowe packs a remarkable amount into each chapter...[T]his is probably the best book of its kind (on philosophy of mind in the broadest sense) that has ever been written." Brad Majors, Kansas State University, Review of Metaphysics
"This book is an ideal textbook for upper-division undergraduate courses or for graduate level survey courses in the philosophy of mind. Any informed reader interested in learning more about the philosophy of mind should read it, and every college and university library should have it." Choice
