Philosophy of Mind

Does anyone have any leads on good resources on philosophy of mind?

I know of Nagel, of course. I also am aware of some of the works by guys like Ed Feser, D.B.Hart, and others who take a decidedly non-physicalist stance. I would love to find something that is rather introductory, but also not taking a rather physicalist approach. That seems to be the dominant orthodox standing, as far as I can tell, but I don't really want to give in to "propaganda", nor to works that plant their reasoning firmly based on methodological naturalism.

Thanks!

I took two philosophy of mind courses. For one of them, we just had an array of articles (many of them coming from an intro textbook that I can't find). For the other it was more focused on cognitive science, so there were lots of topics on physicalism, AI, and so on.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Thanks on the others. Didn't even think about Searle, for some reason.



Also, the head of the philosophy dept is apparently a semi-well known philosopher of mind and Wittgenstein scholar. Julia Tanney.

No worries. If you think of any of the names or articles, let me know.
