Mindscapes

Philosophy, Science, and the Mind

An excellent introduction to contemporary approaches to this area of philosophy via the sciences, demonstrating the extent to which contemporary philosophy of mind has become a branch of the philosophy of science.
Philosophy in Review

Leading scholars in the fields of philosophy and the sciences of the mind have contributed to this newest volume in the prestigious Pittsburgh-Konstanz series. Among the problem areas discussed are folk psychology, meanings as conceptual structures, functional and qualitative properties of colors, the role of conscious mental states, representation and mental content, the impact of connectionism on the philosophy of the mind, and supervenience, emergence, and realization. Most of the essays are followed by commentaries that reflect ongoing debates in the philosophy of the mind and often develop a counterpoint to the claims of the essayists.
