    Book Description:

    As a systematic and critical introduction to the philosophy of mind, The Mystery of Mind is about the trails and tribulations of the human mind toward understanding the wherewithal of its own realization. At issue is what is known in the philosophy of mind as the mind-body problem: how does a body support a mind with its brain?

    Pivotal to the book is the author"s working out of a concept of mind that is user-friendly to the materialist cause. It is in contrast to the traditional concept of mind that many of us still implicitly subscribe. It is upon the strength of this adverbial concept that the author has come to hold that the conceptual gap between the neurobiological and the psycho-cognitive could in fact be bridged. It is also the author"s contention that despite shortcomings of other materialist approaches that have been taken in our time, an intelligible case for the truth of materialism could still be made in the form of a biological emergent two-aspect scenario, i.e., when the adverbial concept of mind he advocates is also brought to bear.

    All in all, what The Mystery of Mind offers is a systematic and critical introduction to one of the living philosophical issues that have engaged the human intellects for the last two and a half thousand years. This is also the central issue that has motivated research in artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and the philosophy of mind in our time.
