Abstract:

Since ancient times, metaphysical theories have been shaped by the
dialectical relations between metaphysical positions. The present book
offers a new account of the role of controversies in the evolution of ideas
in current metaphysics of mind. Part One develops a pragmatic theory of
metaphysical controversies that combines Kantian themes and themes from
current argumentation theory. The theory developed in this book underscores
the role of a unique type of dialectical arguments which establish
metaphysical positions as 'controversial relevant alternatives' in the
evolution of 'chains of debates' in metaphysics. In Part Two and Part
Three, this theory is applied to chains of debates in present day
metaphysics of mind which address the problems of consciousness and
personal identity. One of the contentions defended in this book is that the
intellectual history of metaphysics is not a process in which positions are
replaced by opposite positions, but rather, 'a history of their status as
relevant alternatives'. 

The book analyzes in detail and demonstrates how 'progress' in contemporary
metaphysics of mind consists in a dialectical process through which
challenges to extant positions lead to innovative alternatives that are
intrinsically relevant to advancing the understanding of the issues under
discussion.
