History of the concept of mind: speculations about soul, mind and spirit from Homer to Hume

Portada
Ashgate, 2003 - 398 páginas
In the twentieth century theorists were almost exclusively concerned with various versions of the materialist thesis, but prior to the current debates accounts of soul and mind reveal an extraordinary richness and complexity which bear careful and impartial investigation. This book is the first comprehensive, single-authored work to examine the historical, linguistic and conceptual issues involved in exploring the basic features of the human mind - from its most remote origins, to the beginning of the modern period. Paul MacDonald traces the development of an armature of psychical concepts. Students and readers of philosophy, psychology, literature and theology will find this accessible, comprehensive text an invaluable resource.
