Since Descartes, the mind has been thought to be in the head', separable from the world and even from the body it inhabits. Gregory McCulloch, in The MInd and its World , considers the latest debates in philosophy and cognitive science about whether the thinking subject actually requires an environment in order to ba able to think. McCulloch explores the argument from Descartes, through Locke, Frege and Wittgenstein up to the present day. He then offers an original defence of his own version of externalism - that the mind is constituted by the objectw which are its phenomena. The Mind and its World provides a clear and accessible introduction to a cluster of contemporary controversies in the area of the philosophy of mind and language. It is designed to be read by students with no previous knowledge of the issues, but will also be of interest to specialists in the field.
