This volume is an introduction to contemporary debates in the philosophy of mind. In particular, the author focuses on the controversial eliminativist and instrumentalist attacks - from philosophers such as of Quine, Dennett, and the Churchlands - on our ordinary concept of mind. In so doing, Rey offers an explication and defense of mental realism , and shows how Fodor's representational theory of mind affords a compelling account of much of our ordinary mental talk of beliefs, hopes, and desires.
