Over the past twenty-five years, Thomas Nagel has played a major role in the philosophico-biological debate on subjectivity and consciousness. This extensive collection of published essays and reviews offers Nagel's opinionated views on the philosophy of mind, epistemology, and political philosophy, as well as on fellow philosophers like Freud, Wittgenstein, Rawls, Dennett, Chomsky, Searle, Nozick, Dworkin, and MacIntyre.

"Nagel's is a mind to be taken seriously."--The Tablet "...there is something in this book for nearly everyone....it is a book that anyone engaged in these issues should know about, and should be quick to recommend when confronted with questions such as "what does x think about y..."."--Dan J. Rossini and Staff "During the last quarter century, Thomas Nagel's book reviews and critical essays have played a major role, shaping opinion and thereby shaping the field. Now he has gathered his favorites in a collection...supplemented by the view from today: brief reactions to the individual pieces, and a fascinating introduction, part intellectual autobiography and part reflection on the state of the discipline."--Journal of Philosophy "Nagel's is a mind to be taken seriously."--The Tablet "...there is something in this book for nearly everyone....it is a book that anyone engaged in these issues should know about, and should be quick to recommend when confronted with questions such as 'what does x think about y'...."--Dan J. Rossini and Staff
