9780674022478: Mindsight: Image, Dream, Meaning

'How to imagine the imagination' is a topic that draws philosophers the way flowers draw honeybees. From Plato and Aristotle to Wittgenstein and Sartre, philosophers have talked and written about this most elusive of topics - that is, until contemporary analytic philosophy of mind developed. Perhaps it is the vast range of the topic that has scared off our contemporaries, ranging as it does from mental images to daydreams.

Review:

[An] innovative little book...McGinn leads us to speculation far more stimulating, far more imaginative, than most of what passes for evolutionary psychology...It is rare and wonderful to end a book with a new idea. -- Ian Hacking New York Review of Books 20050407 Written in a lively style, Colin McGinn's Mindsight is a philosophical investigation of the faculty of imagination that will appeal to a wide audience...Mindsight will be essential reading for philosophers with an interest in the imagination...It will also amply reward any reader with an interest in the mechanisms of the mind. -- Phil Joyce Science 20050520 [A] splendid book about the imagination...This interesting and gracefully written book serves as a counterexample to the claim that analytic philosophy is dry, technical, and boring. Readers will find it enjoyable and should learn a lot from it. -- D. Haugen Choice 20050401
