Pressestimmen

'In their interesting and important book, Corb #237; and Prades successfully identify and question the metaphysical assumptions behind current orthodoxy about mental causation, making an original and important contribution to our understanding of this central topic.' Christopher Hookway, University of Sheffield 'Minds, Causes, and Mechanisms is a timely and highly valuable contribution that will re-energize the ongoing debate and take it to another level. It offers refeshingly lucid and illuminating analysis and critique of the basic assumptions and arguments that have shaped the dominant physicalist outlook in this area, what Corb #237; and Prades call "causal physicalism". This book is an essential contribution. Highly recommended.' Jaegwon Kim, Brown University 'A thorough and subtle critique of physicalism. After reading it, even committed physicalists may conclude that their doctrine is beyond resurrection.' George Couvalis, Flinders University
