Summary

How are truths about physical and mental states related? In The Conceptual Link from Physical to Mental Robert Kirk articulates and defends a fresh approach to the physical-to-mental connection in his theory of 'redescriptive physicalism'. The theory provides an invaluable philosophical basis for dealing with the problems that mental causation raises for other non-reductive views.
