New Book: The Biological Mind

One of the most neglected perspectives in traditional philosophy of mind/cogsci is that the mind is a biological system, and that therefore philosophy of mind/cogsci is a branch of philosophy of biology.

Fortunately, Justin Garson has just published The Biological Mind (Routledge), an introduction to the philosophy of mind that considers the mind as a biological system and draws insights from the philosophy of biology.

The book is clear, insightful, well written, and goes way beyond a review of the literature to offer a fresh perspective on the philosophy of mind. I’ve already had two paper ideas from reading it and I’m not even done reading it. I highly recommend it.
