The Constitution of Consciousness
A Study in Analytic Phenomenology
Routledge – 2005 – 136 pages
Series: Studies in Philosophy
Through the work of philosophers like Sellars, Davidson, and McDowell, the question of how the mind is related to the world has gained new importance in contemporary analytic philosophy. This book demonstrates that Husserl's phenomenological analyses of the structure of consciousness can provide fruitful insights for developing an original approach to these questions.
Wolfgang Huemer teaches philosophy at the University of Erfurt, Germany. He is co-editor of The Literary Wittgenstein (Routledge, 2004).
