I was very disappointed by this book, which I had heard of in Victor Reppert's "C. S. Lewis's Dangerous Idea". It is a defense of the plausibility (rather than truth) of what the author calls "integrative dualism", which I agree with insofar as it can be defined.

With a title like this, how could you not slog your way to the bitter end? But there wasn't any big payoff and philosophers can be so wordy and tedious. It's about the "mind/body problem." Is matter different from mind (dualist) or is it all the same thing? How does consciousness come from inanimate matter? Sorry, no one knows.
