The mind is the brain. Each mental state - hope, fear and thought - can be identified with a particular physical state of the brain. Or so argues Nicholas Humphrey. In this book he offers support for his "identity theory" from evolution. His claim is discussed and challenged by authors such as Andy Clark, Daniel Dennett and Ralph Ellis, and Humphrey ends the book with a response to his critics. Essentially this is a short introduction to the mind-body problem and the study of consciousness.
