"Kim's book is the best general survey of metaphysics of mind. It brims with arresting arguments and lucid points of exposition. Kim's own philosophical judgment is not suppressed, but he gives sympathetic accounts of opposing views. Perhaps no other text accessible to undergraduates is so often consulted by professional philosophers. Most chapters have been augmented in this third edition, but its most distinctive feature is its expanded discussion of consciousness." -Bernard W. Kobes, Arizona State University Praise for Previous Editions: "Like the highly acclaimed earlier edition, this book provides an extremely useful, state-of-the-art introduction to the philosophy of mind. Thanks to his incomparably lucid style, the author is able to discuss the issues at greater depth than is generally attempted in an introductory text, thus also providing a very accessible introduction to his own challenging and influential views on the mind-body problem. Really a wonderful book, useful to students and researchers alike." -Ausonio Marras, University of Western Ontario "An introductory survey to philosophy of mind, this work is impressive equally for its clarity and depth as an overview and its forcefulness as an original contribution to its subject." -Choice
