Summary
In this book, Edward Pols revisits one of the basic topics of philosophy: What is the distinction between mind and body and what is the relation between them? Pols calls upon the reader to attend to mind itself as a concrete and experientially available reality - to attend to what minds actually accomplish in knowing the world and acting on the world. This kind of attention, he argues persuasively, reveals mind to be at once causally dependent on the brain and causally effective on the physical processes of the brain and the world. Readers who are not professional philosophers will find a clear explanation of the origins and inadequacies of certain contemporary solutions to the mind-body question; professional philosophers will find some major philosophers of the past put into a fresh perspective
