The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Mind presents a guide on the philosophy of mind. The study of the mind has always been one of the main preoccupations of philosophers, and has been a booming area of research in recent decades, with remarkable advances in psychology and neuroscience. A leading international team of contributors offer forty-five critical surveys of a wide range of topics relating to the mind. The first two sections cover the place of the mind in the natural world: its ontological status, how it fits into the causal fabric of the universe, and the nature of consciousness. The third section focuses on the much-debated subjects of content and intentionality. The fourth section examines a variety of mental capacities, including memory, imagination, and emotion. The fifth section looks at epistemic issues, in particular regarding knowledge of one's own and other minds. The volume concludes with a section on self, personhood, and agency.

Keywords: psychology; neuroscience; natural world; ontological status; causal fabric; universe; consciousness; content; intentionality; mental capacities; memory; imagination; emotion; epistemic issues; knowledge; self; personhood; agency
