THIS BOOK IS NOT A CONVENTIONAL INTRODUCTION TO THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE MIND NOR IS IT A CONTRIBUTION TO THE PHYSICALIST/DUALIST DEBATE.

Instead it demonstrates that we can construct physicalist theories of important aspects of mental life. Its aim is to explain and defend this position of intelligence in two parts...the first six chapters consist of exposition, elaboration and defense of one of the main theories of human sentience (the functionalist theory of mind), and the second part considers rivals and objections to this theory.
