Consciousness Revisited

Promotional Information

In opposing dualism, and defending the view that mind is a form of matter, modern materialists often substitute a dualism of their own -- a dualism of concepts rather than properties. Tye has been a leading advocate of this materialist strategy, in his classic Consciousness, Color, and Content and elsewhere. Consciousness Revisited marks a radical intellectual break: Tye offers powerful arguments against his previous position, and a new way to defend materialism, leaning on Bertrand Russell's notion of knowledge by acquaintance. This book is terrific -- the many admirers of the early Tye may be reassured that the later Tye is just as good. -- Alex Byrne, Department of Philosophy, MIT and co-author of Disjunctivism This marvelously informed, powerfully argued book is Michael Tye's latest contribution to the task of finding a naturalistic understanding of consciousness. It is an agenda setter. -- Frank Jackson, Department of Philosophy, Princeton University

Reviews

[An] impressive contribution to the study of consciousness...I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the study of consciousness and perception.
