The Mind and Its Depths

Richard Wollheim

ISBN 9780674576124

Publication date: 01/01/1994

The mind as it is manifested in philosophy and art, in the moral life and psychoanalysis, has always been at the core of Richard Wollheim’s celebrated work. This book brings together Wollheim’s broad and abiding concerns to illuminate human thought at its furthest reaches of introspection and expression. Interweaving philosophy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics, these essays reveal the critical connections between ideas and disciplines too often regarded as separate and distinct.


  • Wonderful essays… We encounter not just a system of highly original thought, but a highly original mind and a highly original man.

    —Arthur C. Danto, London Review of Books


  • Richard Wollheim was Mills Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, and Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at the University of California, Davis.
