Review of Metaphysics 38 (3):655-657 (1985)
AbstractFrom time to time philosophers are accused of discussing philosophical issues only with those with whom they share much in common. This is not the case with Hywel Lewis and this volume is an excellent demonstration of that. For some years Lewis has defended a version of what is called the Platonic-Cartesian dualism of the mental and the physical. In this volume he continues to defend this position against British, American, and Continental philosophers. The Elusive Self is the second volume of his Gifford Lectures. In the first volume, entitled The Elusive Mind, he argued for a distinction and interaction between mental and physical processes and in this volume he is concerned primarily with the problem of self identity. In the preface to this book he promises a third and final volume which will develop the implications of his view of persons for morality and religion.
