The World, the Flesh and the Subject: Continental Themes in Philosophy of Mind and Body

Paul Gilbert and Kathleen Lennon


This work brings contemporary continental thought into conversation with analytic philosophy on the principal topics of philosophy of mind, considering three themes – the world, the flesh and the subject – to resolve the puzzles that beset contemporary philosophy of mind.
