About the Author

David Papineau is Professor of Philosophy at King's College London. His books include Theory and Meaning (Clarendon 1979), Reality and Representation (Blackwell 1987), Philosophical Naturalism (Blackwell 1993), The Philosophy of Science (Oxford Readings in Philosophy 1996), and a collection of essays, The Roots of Reason (Clarendon 2003).


`Review from previous edition lucid and informative ... It synthesizes at least thirty years of relevant philosophical investigation - not only in philosophy of mind, but also in philosophy of science, metaphysics and philosophical logic. The book is an excellent introduction to this area, and those more familiar with it will find the treatment deft and insightful.' Alva Noe, Times Literary Supplement
