Edward Feser teaches philosophy at Pasadena City College, California. He is the author of On Nozick and editor of The Cambridge Companion to Hayek.

"A splendid, highly accessible and lucid introduction. The arguments are engaging and provide a refreshing challenge to some of the conventional assumptions in the field."

"Feser has a feel for the enduring problems…an excellent introduction."

"Tightly written and admirably clear… Fesar covers just the right topics, and does so judiciously and fairly… a refreshing, provocative, and important addition to the introductory books in philosophy of mind. It should appear on every reading list."
