Contemporary materialist accounts of consciousness and subjectivity challenge how we think of ourselves and of ultimate reality. This book defends a nonmaterialistic view of persons and subjectivity and the intelligibility of thinking of God as a nonphysical, spiritual reality. It endeavors to articulate in a related way the integral relationship between ourselves and our material bodies and between God and the cosmos. Different versions of materialism are assessed, as are alternative, post-dualist concepts of God.

'Taliaferro's project to examine the significance of recent philosophy of mind for philosophical theism is 'an idea whose time has come'.' Richard Creel, Ithica College, New York '... a magisterial survey ... Consciousness and the Mind of God offers as comprehensive a survey of the views of Paul Churchland and other luminaries of this era as one might want. ... The analysis is invariably informed and judicious.' Brain
