not yet rated|write a review
Widely used in philosophy courses, this succinct study explores the problem of determining the relation between the body and mind.  In that philosophy seeks to elucidate man’s place and action in nature, Campbell asserts that our assessment of the body-mind problem affects our perspectives on metaphysics, epistemology, ethics and the natural sciences. After discussing how the body-mind problem developed, Campbell sets forth an inconsistent tetrad of propositions that serves as the framework for evaluating different philosophical approaches to the problem.  Among competing perspectives, he examines dualism, behaviorist theories, the causal theory of mind, central-state epiphenomenalism. This revised edition includes a new chapter on functionalism and an expanded bibliography.
