viii, 330 pages with a one page catalogue to the rear. ' In a work published some years ago I attempted to show that 'panpsychism', or the theory of mind-stuff, deals more successfully than other philosophies with the problem of mind and body, since it enables us (1) to reconcile psychophysical parallelism with the efficacy of mind, (2) to explain why two such things as mind and body are connected at all. Certain difficulties, it is true, remained, which I mentioned at the end of the book and reserved for future treatment: the seeming disparity in complexity between the mind and the brain-process, the nature of mind-stuff, the origin of consciousness out of it. To solve, if possible, these difficulties is the aim of the present volume '. Contents of the book are Preliminary. Mind and Body, and Chapters on Givenness, The Psyche, Under the heading First Difficulty Knowing Chapters on The Mechanism of Givenness, Modern Theories of Consciousness, The Cognitional Categories, The Initial Fallacies of Metaphysical Thought, Introspection, The Reality of Cognition, Adequacy of Cognition, Under the heading Second Difficulty Unity of the Mind Chapters on Memory and Personal Identity, The Perception of Change, Mental Synthesis, The momentary Psychic State, and the final heading Third Difficulty Mental Plurality and Diversity Chapters on The Perception of Space, Psychic Elements, Simple Qualities, and an Epilogue Fate and Free Will. Book - in Good black boards with gilt lettering - slight marking to the boards, some small nicks and slight wear to the extreme top and bottom of the spine, very slight wear to the extreme corners.
