quot;Mind in Actionquot; by Bede Rundle
Oxford University Press | 1997 | ISBN: 0198236913 | 316 pages | File type: PDF/djvu | 13/6 mb
Mind in Action challenges the dominant view in contemporary philosophy that human action is driven by thoughts and desires much as a machine is made to function by the operation of physical causes.

Bede Rundle rejects the materialist view of mind and the causal theory of action; hisalternative approach elucidates such key concepts as thought, belief, desire, intention, and freedom to give a fresh view of human behavior.
