Editorial Reviews

`A cohesive vision of the mind and its place in the realms of causation and morality . . . Mind, Morality, and Explanation is an outstanding anthology precisely because it justifies the decision to bring its papers together not merely on the usual grounds of accessibility, loose thematicconnection, or happenstance, but on intellectual grounds: reading these papers as a whole leads one to appreciate one way of understanding the mind that might not be appreciated otherwise. It can be recommended to any philosopher working on at least one of its focal topics who is ready to broadenher horizons and see what the big picture might look like when explored by some of the leaders of contemporary philosophy.'Timothy Schroeder, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
