YOU ONLY THINK YOU'VE GOT CHOICES--BUT THAT THOUGHT ITSELF IS FULLY "DETERMINED." In other words, according to the philosopher who "chose" to write the book that the editors of Psyche "chose" to have reviewed, our freedom is a total illusion. We would have thought that this sort of "primitive materialist-determinism" had been abandoned long ago...but our thought, mistaken or otherwise, had some cause or causes unrelated to what we mistakenly take to be our own consciousness. Do you follow all this? Do you see how easy--if stupefying--it is to be a "philosopher of mind?"
