Philosophy of Mind: Contemporary Perspectives now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Philosophy of Mind: Contemporary Perspectives, edited by Manuel Curado and Steven S. Gouveia.
The human mind is one of the most extraordinary mysteries of the contemporary sciences and philosophy. We know for sure that we have one, and that we have feelings and conscious experience. But why is that? This anthology addresses contemporary issues in the field of study that is the philosophy of mind. It is divided into five main parts: i) the concept of Self in the contemporary philosophy of mind; ii) sensory experience: odors, vision and colors; iii) Artificial Intelligence: the future, the ethics and the costs; iv) the relationship between neuroscience and philosophy; and, finally, v) the influences and history of the philosophy of mind. This book will be useful for specialists of the field, but also for others who are interested in some of the more updated sciences of the mind. Continue reading

Paperback edition of Shakespeare’s Ghosts Live: From Shakespeare’s Ghosts to Psychical Research now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing
Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the paperback release of Shakespeare’s Ghosts Live: From Shakespeare’s Ghosts to Psychical Research by Annekatrin Puhle and Adrian Parker-Reed.
Shakespeare has been one of the most-cited authors since his plays were performed, and yet little attention has been paid to his views on psychic phenomena. It took another 300 years of paranormal experiences before scholars at Cambridge University helped to found the Society for Psychical Research, which brought scientific scrutiny to the area, and the UK is now a world leader in university research on this topic. This book throws new light on many historical case reports from Shakespeare’s time onwards. It identifies the core experiences that transcend time and give clues to an understanding of psychic phenomena. The book highlights Shakespeare’s insights, showing how these relate to, and even amplify, the conclusions of later and on-going research. In our time of disconnectedness from nature, the book discusses neglected human experiences which represent an important part of life and which do, in fact, occur to most of us. In doing so, the book raises awareness against the emptiness of a zombie-like existence in today’s society and offers a new approach to life and death, and their deeper meaning.

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Opportunity to Live Well: The Wisdom of Nelson Mandela, Gough Whitlam, Pete Seeger and Others by Paul James.
What is the greatest, most precious, opportunity that life provides? It is not winning millions in a lottery. Money, fame, intelligence, beauty, a prestigious career, or mere existence will not simply provide us with a good life. We all have the potential to live well, to have a good life, but how can we do so? We can master complex subjects, attain advanced qualifications and demonstrate sound skills; we can become wealthy, and still make a mess of our lives. People can meet the accepted measures of success, yet still not live well. Continue reading
