Over at Fragments, David Chalmers asks for suggestions for the list of the most important recent-ish books in philosophy of mind. He seems to like books from long ago, thinking nothing post-1970 matches up with the best 1920-1970 work, and nothing post-1987 matches with the best 1970-1987 work. Is he right?
If I had more time (and a pony) it’d be fun to run a poll to figure out now that we’ve got some critical distance the most highly regarded books in several fields in philosophy. (What about metaphysics, for example? Language? I guess political philosophy is relatively easy, but overall it’s tricksy.) But as it is we’ll have to settle for discussion threads.
PS: No discussion of best philosophy of mind books here. All that talk should happen over at Dave’s place.
