Summary
  • "At the end of the twentieth century, it might seem that questions about the nature of the mind are best left to scientists rather than philosophers. How could the views of Aristotle or Descartes or Kant possibly contribute anything to our understanding of issues like artificial intelligence or brain imaging, when the relevant neurophysiological facts and principles were completely unknown to them?"
  • "This Oxford Reader shows that the arguments of philosophers throughout history are a source of essential insights into contemporary questions about the mind. Contributions from thinkers ranging from Plato and Locke to Oliver Sacks and Roger Penrose demonstrate that appreciating the full complexity of debates about consciousness, intelligence, and perception requires attention to fundamental philosophical questions."--Jacket
