What happens when we accept that everything we feel and think stems not from an immaterial spirit but from electrical and chemical activity in our brains? Churchland grounds the philosophy of mind in the essential ingredients of biology. She reflects with humor on how she came to harmonize science and philosophy, the mind and the brain, abstract ideals and daily life.

Good, but Churchland repeats a lot of material from her previous book. If you've read her earlier academic writings, this is really just a more personal & readable summary of her views.
