Audible Editor Reviews

Philosophy of the Mind is presented here in two four-and-a-half-hour audiobooks. Each is a wonderful, comprehensive guide to the philosophy of the mind, narrated with patient deliberation by Andrea Powell. The author acknowledges the limits of our understanding of the subject, but does a thorough job conveying what is known of the field. The audio covers artificial technology, human thought, and many other mysterious riddles related to our brains. Specifically aimed at students with no background in philosophy, the program provides a clear introduction to the subject and its key thinkers and their views. Ultimately, this is a discussion of mind vs. matter and the nature of reality. Who isn't interested in pondering these questions for a few hours, guided by Powell's gentle voice?
