The Reality of the Mind

Full Product Description

Among the various approaches to the question of the nature of the mind (or soul), Augustine s philosophical arguments for the existence of an incorporeal and spiritual substance in man and against materialism are here thoroughly examined on their merits as a source of insight for contemporary discussion.

This book, originally published in 1986, employs Augustine s method of introspection, and argues that, as a philosopher, Augustine can teach the modern mind how to detect the reality of such a spiritual subject in and through basic human acts and faculties, such as imagination, memory, knowledge, free-will and self-knowledge. It presents a critical dialogue with various materialistic anthropologies directly addressed by Augustine himself, or those which have arisen at later periods, including epiphenomenalism, mind-brain identity theory, Marxism and others.

The Reality of the Mind by Ludger Holscher was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in April 2013. The ISBN for The Reality of the Mind is 9780415822398.
