Raymond N. Osei, The Mind-Body Problem in Philosophy: An Analysis of the Core Issues, Hope Publications Ltd., Ibadan, Nigeria, 2006. Pp. 225. ISBN 978-8080-18-9
This book begins without pretensions on the position the author wants to defend. The opening statement says “the position I intend to support is the belief that there is a material world and that this is all there is”. The author also acknowledges the fact that we have many reasons to question his option. The inherited conventional wisdom which harps on the existence of at least two diametrically opposed realities namely the physical and the spiritual as characterizing realities of different natures, the body and the mind (soul) are the real issues around which this inquiry is set. The author has shown his awareness of the seriousness of the controversy and the pessimism of arriving at a conclusive solution to the problem.
