First words
Preface -- The essays collected here attempt to solve a wide variety of puzzles about the mind. Out of the solutions proposed emerges a relatively unified and comprehensive theory of the mind, a revised and extended version of the theory I presented in 1969, in Content and Consciousness.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0262540371, Paperback)

This collection of 17 essays by the author offers a comprehensive theory of mind, encompassing traditional issues of consciousness and free will. Using careful arguments and ingenious thought-experiments, the author exposes familiar preconceptions and hobbling institutions. The essays are grouped into four sections: Intentional Explanation and Attributions of Mentality; The Nature of Theory in Psychology; Objects of Consciousness and the Nature of Experience; and Free Will and Personhood.
