Review of Metaphysics 22 (4):752-752 (1969)

Abstract
This paperback consists of a reprint of Feigl's now famous paper published originally in Volume II of the Minnesota Studies in the Philosophy of Science and a short postscript written ten years after. When Feigl first published his article, his main concern was to show that linguistic philosophy had not succeeded in showing that the problems involved in understanding mind and body were linguistic pseudo-problems. And he developed in great detail the outlines of a proposed solution to the problems. The vast literature of the last ten years certainly has vindicated Feigl's claim about the liveness and importance of the issues. While Feigl ended his original article with a budget of problems still to be confronted, he did think that his double-knowledge or double-designation view was essentially correct. As a result of ten years of criticisms, Feigl is far more tentative about many of his specific claims and recognizes that there are many unresolved difficulties in the three main issues of the cluster of mind-body problems: sentience, sapience, and selfhood.--R. J. B.
