In this provocative book, Fred Dretske argues that to achieve an understanding of the mind it is not enough to understand the biological machinery by means of which the mind does its job.

One must understand what the minds job is and how this task can be performed by a physical system--the nervous system. Naturalizing the Mind skillfully develops a representational theory of the qualitative, the phenomenal, the what-it-is-like aspects of the mind that have defied traditional forms of naturalism. Central to Dretskes approach is the claim that the phenomenal aspects of perceptual experiences are one and the same as external, real-world properties that experience represents objects as having.

Combined with an evolutionary account of sensory representation, the result is a completely naturalistic account of phenomenal consciousness.* Not for sale in France or Belgium
