Matters of Mind examines the mind-body problem. It offers a chapter by chapter analysis of debates surrounding the problem, including visual experience, consciousness and the problem of Zombies and Ghosts. It will prove invaluable for those interested in epistemology, philosophy of mind and cognitive science.


The six chapters of this well-written book can be read separately, or as a unity leading to Sturgeon's "Wait-and-See view" in the mind-body debate.' - Journal of Consciousness Studies
