About the Author

William Jaworski is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Fordham University. He is the author of Philosophy of Mind: A Comprehensive Introduction (Wiley-Blackwell) and a range of papers dealing with topics in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of religion.


William Jaworski's book is a splendid addition to this revival of hylomorphism, notable for its clarity, thoroughness of presentation and depth of analysis ... His book will richly repay study by anyone interested in the mind-body problem and metaphysics in general. * William Seager, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online *
Outstanding rigorous scholarship, linking an old theme (hylomorphism, going back to Aristotle and Aquinas) to contemporary philosophy of mind issues. It builds a new creative approach to hylomorphism. It is a most impressive work in systematic (not historical) metaphysics and philosophy of mind. It will have significant impact in contemporary philosophy of mind (which is really philosophy of person), and in the philosophical (and ethical) issues raised by neuroscience. * Judge quote from 2017 Alpha Sigma Nu Book Award *
