Philosophy of Mind: Contemporary Readings is a comprehensive anthology that draws together leading philosophers writing on the major topics within philosophy of mind. Robb and O'Connor have carefully chosen articles under the following headings:
*Substance Dualism and Idealism
*Mind and Representation
Each section is prefaced by an introductory essay by the editors which guides the student gently into the topic in which leading philosophers are included.
The book is highly accessible and user-friendly and provides a broad-ranging exploration of the subject. Ideal for any philosophy student, this book will prove essential reading for any philosophy of mind course. The readings are designed to complement John Heil's Philosophy of Mind: A Contemporary Introduction, Second edition (Routledge 2003), although the anthology can also be used as a stand-alone volume.

David Robb is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Davidson College. He has published in several journals including Philosophical Quarterly, Philosophical Review and Philosophical Topics. Tim O'Connor is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Indiana University, Illinois.Review:
"This is a very well-conceived collection of papers, combining established classics with some fresh choices which shed new light on old problems. The collection rightly emphasizes the traditional metaphysical issues which lie at the heart of the philosophy of mind, while not ignoring the lively contemporary debates about consciousness and the philosophy of cognitive science. Highly recommended."
-Tim Crane, University College London
"This superb anthology can be used in conjunction with John Heil's textbook "Philosophy of Mind: A Contemporary Introduction, and together they make for an excellent undergraduate course, particularly one that emphasizes the metaphysical side of the field."
-Eric Margolis, Rice University
