About

Overview

Philosophy: Mind is composed of nineteen chapters covering such topics as the self, free will, consciousness, perception, memory, emotions, and artificial intelligence. The use of film, literature, art, case studies, and other disciplines or situations/events provide illustrations of human experiences which work as gateways to questions philosophers try to address. Chapters are written by eminent scholars, are peer reviewed, and offer bibliographies to encourage further exploration. Photos and line art help illuminate the text. The volume concludes with a glossary and a comprehensive index
