Summary
"How do I know whether there are any minds besides my own? This problem of other minds in philosophy raises questions which are at the heart of all philosophical investigations - how it is that we know, what is in the mind, and whether we can be certain about any of our beliefs. In this book, Anita Avramides begins with a historical overview of the problem from the Ancient Skeptics to Descartes, Malebranche, Locke, Berkely, Reid, and Wittgenstein. The second part of the book investigates the views of influential contemporary philosophers such as Strawson, Davidson, Nagel, and Searle."--Jacket.
