Segnaliamo una ricca bibliografia di testi filosofici compilata da David Chalmers, della Australian National University. La bibliografia comprende più di 8.000 voci ed è articolata in sei sezioni, a loro volta suddivise in sottosezioni. L’ultimo aggiornamento risale al 12 novembre 2005.
Riportiamo l’indice delle sezioni principali:
- Part 1: Consciousness and Qualia (1.523 voci)
- Part 2: Mental Content (1.348 voci)
- Part 3: Metaphysics of Mind (1.465 voci)
- Part 4: Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence (639 voci)
- Part 5: Philosophy of Psychology (1.087 voci)
- Part 6: Consciousness in the Sciences (2.080 voci)
“This is a bibliography of recent work in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of artificial intelligence, and on consciousness in the sciences. It consists of 8142 entries, and is divided into six parts, each of which is further divided by topic and subtopic. Many older entries are annotated with a brief summary. Note that I stopped adding annotations a few years ago, and I don’t necessarily take responsibility for annotations by my past self.
The bibliography consists mostly of papers and books from the last few decades, with density of coverage increasing with proximity to the present. Many core areas of contemporary philosophy of mind are covered, but some areas (e.g. philosophy of perception, philosophy of action, propositional attitude semantics, moral psychology) receive less coverage than others. Part 6 on the science of consciousness is relatively new and is not annotated. It’s not strictly “philosophy of mind”, but I’ve put it here for convenience. Of course the division between parts is inexact. There is plenty of material by philosophers in part 6, and plenty of material by scientists in the other parts (especially parts 1, 4, and 5)”.
