Real Materialism: and Other Essays

Galen Strawson


This book draws together chapters written over twenty years by the author in philosophy of mind and metaphysics. It focuses on five main areas of enquiry: the nature of the physical, consciousness, the ‘mind-body problem’, and the prospects for panpsychism; the self, the subject of experience, self-consciousness, and the ‘narrative’ self; free will and moral responsibility; the nature of thought and intentionality and their connection with consciousness; and the problem of causation with particular reference to the philosophy of David Hume.

Keywords: physical, consciousness, experience, self-consciousness, narrative, self, free will, moral responsibility, thought, intentionality
