Description

Jaegwon Kim is one of the most preeminent and most influential contributors to the philosophy of mind and metaphysics

Jaegwon Kim is one of the most preeminent and most influential contributors to the philosophy of mind and metaphysics. This collection of essays presents the core of his work on supervenience and mind with two sets of postscripts especially written for the book. The essays focus on such issues as the nature of causation and events.

Jaegwon Kim's "Supervenience and Mind: Selected Philosophical Essays" is an absolute must-read for any philosopher working in the philosophy of mind. Of particular interest, Kim lays out his views in supervenience and its relation to the mind-body problem, discusses and (in my view) deals a death-blow to Donald Davidson's anomalous monism, and begins the development of his views on reductionism that come to fruition in his "Mind in a Physical World" (also a great read)

For three decades the writings of Jaegwon Kim have had a major influence in philosophy of mind and in metaphysics. Sixteen of his philosophical papers, together with several new postscripts, are collected in Kim. The publication of this collection prompts the present essay. After some preliminary remarks in the opening section, in Section 2 I will briefly describe Kim's philosophical 'big picture' about the relation between the mental and the physical.

In this volume the distinguished philosopher Ernest Sosa collects essays on this subject written over a period of twenty-five years. All the major topics of contemporary epistemology are covered: the nature of propositional knowledge; externalism versus internalism; foundationalism versus coherentism; and the problem of the criterion. Ever since Plato, philosophers have faced one central question: what is the scope and nature of human knowledge? In this volume the distinguished philosopher Ernest Sosa collects essays on this subject written over a period of twenty-five years.

Jaegwon Kim is one of the most preeminent and most influential contributors to the philosophy of mind and metaphysics.

A central problem in the philosophy of mind is the problem of explaining how the mind can causally influence bodily processes. Professor Kim explores this problem in detail, criticizes the nonreductionist solution of it, and offers a modified reductionist solution of his own. Both professional philosophers and their graduate students will find this an invaluable collection.
