Philosophical work on the mind flowed in two streams through the 20th century: phenomenology and analytic philosophy. The phenomenological tradition began with Brentano and was developed by such great European philosophers as Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty. As the centuryadvanced, Anglophone philosophers increasingly developed their own distinct styles and methods of studying the mind, and a gulf seemed to open up between the two traditions. This volume aims to bring them together again, by demonstrating how work in phenomenology may lead to significant progress onproblems central to current analytic research, and how analytical philosophy of mind may shed light on phenomenological concerns. Leading figures from both traditions contribute specially written essays on such central topics as consciousness, intentionality, perception, action, self-knowledge,temporal awareness, and mental content. Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind demonstrates that these different approaches to the mind should not stand in opposition to each other, but can be mutually illuminating.

Editorial Reviews

Smith (Univ. of California, Irvine) and Thomasson (Univ. of Miami) offer in this anthology the latest installment in the history of attempts at bridge-building between the traditions of Continental phenomenology and Anglo-American philosophy of mind. The present volume brings together diverse essays by a team of international philosophers in a solicitous gesture of self-introduction directed toward analytic philosophers of mind. Following an excellent historical introduction, the volume's essays divide into sections addressing the place of phenomenology in philosophy of mind; self-awareness and he self-knowledge; intentionality; consciousness; and place of perception, sensation, and action. --Choice
