Editor reviews

Philosophy of the Mind is presented here in two four-and-a-half-hour audiobooks. Each is a wonderful, comprehensive guide to the philosophy of the mind, narrated with patient deliberation by Andrea Powell. The author acknowledges the limits of our understanding of the subject, but does a thorough job conveying what is known of the field. The audio covers artificial technology, human thought, and many other mysterious riddles related to our brains. Specifically aimed at students with no background in philosophy, the program provides a clear introduction to the subject and its key thinkers and their views. Ultimately, this is a discussion of mind vs. matter and the nature of reality. Who isn't interested in pondering these questions for a few hours, guided by Powell's gentle voice?

Summary

In this lively and entertaining introduction to the philosophy of mind, Edward Feser explores the questions central to the discipline, and relates them not only to the human brain and its capacity for thought, but also to the increasing sophistication of artificial intelligence. This in-depth primer is an account of all the most important and significant attempts that have been made to answer the riddles of consciousness and thought.

An Interesting Listen

Although I enjoyed the book, it proved much more challenging than I expected and demands close attention.

Very Good Intro

I really enjoyed this book, there were times towards the middle of the book where it became a little dizzying - trying to follow along with who’s who and what’s what but overall it was very clear and concise; very approachable. Period
