Gray Matters: Introduction to the Philosophy of Mind

Goldberg and Pessin provide a clearly written introduction to the field presupposing no knowledge of philosophy. The first two chapters introduce and examine the traditional positions on the mind-body problem; the middle three chapters turn to the issues which will define philosophy of mind in the coming decade; and the final chapter provides a brief survey of other relevant topics. The book's much needed organization and codification of work in the field will be useful to advanced students as well.
