About the Author

Frank Jackson is Professor of Philosophy in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University.


`This book is the published version of Jackson's 1995 John Locke Lectures. It is an outstanding work. Given its breath and originality, it deserves to be widely studied. Given its brevity and clarity, it actually might be. The book covers a vast range of topics, from the issue of physicalism in the philosophy of mind, via the nature of conceptual analysis, to the metaphysics of colour and ethics. In each area Jackson stakes out a distinctive position which accords with the basic account of metaphysics defended throughout.' Hallvard Lillehammer, British Journal for the Philosophy of Science Step by carefully argued step, in these John Locke Lectures, Frank Jackson inquires into how conceptual analysis subserves the aims of serious metaphysics. This is analytic philosophy at its best both on the unifying metaphilosophical theme, and also on the more specific questions of metaphysics and ethics used as main examples. Through the prismof language or not, Frank Jackson's lectures illuminate every subject that they touch. - Ernest Sosa - TLS 16th July 1999
