Key Terms in Philosophy of Mind

Pete Mandik is trailing his forthcoming book – Key Terms in Philosophy of Mind – to be published by Continuum. From what I’ve read of Pete’s work, he always offers a reliable hard-nosed account of issues in the philosophy of mind and is very up on the literature – he is not stuck in rehashing philosophy of mind circa 1989 – as it seems some are apt to do. An added bonus to the reader is that they can follow Pete’s blog which is arguably the most vibrant and provocative of blogs – Brain Hammer – here is a real enthusiast. Oh yes, a characteristic Mandik paper entitled “Shit Happens” for EPISTEME‘s special issue on conspiracy theories is well worth checking out given that conspiracy continues to animate the popular mind.
