Thoughts: Papers on Mind, Meaning, and Modality

Stephen Yablo


This book presents a collection of twelve essays which together constitute a modern-day examination of Cartesian themes in the metaphysics of mind. The book offers penetrating discussions of such topics as the relation between the mental and the physical, mental causation, the possibility of disembodied existence, the relation between conceivability and possibility, varieties of necessity, and issues in the theory of content arising out of the foregoing. The collection represents almost all of this book's author's work on these topics, and features one previously unpublished piece.

Keywords: Cartesian, metaphysics of mind, mental causation, disembodied existence, conceivability, varieties of necessity, theory of content
