  • Persons and their Minds

    Towards an Integrative Theory of the Mediated Mind

    By Svend Brinkmann

    Today’s approaches to the study of the human mind are divided into seemingly opposed camps. On one side we find the neurosciences, with their more or less reductionist research programs, and on the other side we find the cultural and discursive approaches, with their frequent neglect of the…

  • Plant Minds

    A Philosophical Defense

    By Chauncey Maher

    The idea that plants have minds can sound improbable, but some widely respected contemporary scientists and philosophers find it plausible.

  • The Clinician, the Brain, and 'I'

    Neuroscientific findings and the subjective self in clinical practice

  • Self-Reflection for the Opaque Mind

    An Essay in Neo-Sellarsian Philosophy

    By T. Parent

    This volume attempts to solve a grave problem about critical self-reflection. The worry is that we critical thinkers are all in "epistemic bad faith" in light of what psychology tells us. After all, the research shows not merely that we are bad at detecting "ego-threatening" thoughts à la Freud. It…

  • An Analysis of Knowing

    By John Hartland-Swann

    First published in 1958, this book focuses on the meaning, interpretation, and use of the verb ‘to know’.

  • Simulation Theory

    A psychological and philosophical consideration

    By Tim Short

    Theory of Mind (ToM) is the term used for our ability to predict and explain the behaviour of ourselves and others.
