Minds and Bodies is a clear introduction to the mind-body problem. It requires no prior philosophical knowledge and is ideally suited to newcomers to philosophy and philosophy of mind. Robert Wilkinson carefully introduces the fundamental components of the philosophy of mind: Descartes's dualist account of mind and body; monist views including eliminativism; computer science and artificial intelligence. Each chapter is linked to a reading from key thinkers in the field, from Descartes to Paul Churchland.

"Written in a clear, unintimidating style.Wilkinson covers the major positions and arguments in the field, but he does more than simply catalog them: he carefully guides the reader through this often difficult territory." -David Robb, Davidson College
