A Historical Introduction to the Philosophy of Mind A Historical Introduction to the Philosophy of Mind: Readings With Commentary by Peter A. Morton first published by Broadview Press in 1997 and reprinted in 1999, 2005, and 2007. The approach author came to adopt is to try to show students how the contemporary set of theories and issues arise out of an ongoing process of revising and rethinking previous theories. The idea of putting this material together into a book came up one day when he was chatting with Don LePan of Broadview Press. The issues introduced in this book are today referred to collectively as the mind-body problem. It is a search for answer to the question, “What is the relationship between the mind and the physical body?‘ This search raises such issues as whether the mind and body are one thing or two, and whether artificial machines could have minds. Author hopes that the issues he has chosen provide sufficient background to enable to move on to the other problems without difficulties.
