This volume brings together a selection of essays by Christopher S. Hill, which address a large assortment of philosophical issues. Part I presents a deflationary theory of truth, argues that semantic properties can also be characterized in deflationary terms, and offers an account of the value of these 'thin' properties. Part II defends the view that conscious experiences are type-identical with brain states, and argues that theories of experience based ontype-identity should give way to representationalist accounts. Part III presents a representationalist solution to the mind-body problem. It argues that all awareness, including awareness of qualia, is governed by a Kantian appearance/reality distinction, and presents theories of pain and visual qualiathat assign them to locations in body and the external world. Finally, Part IV defends reliabilist theories of epistemic justification, deploys such theories in answering Cartesian skepticism, responds critically to Hawthorne's lottery problem and related proposals about the role of knowledge in conversation and practical reasoning, presents a new account of the sources of modeal knowledge, and proposes an account of logical and mathematical beliefs that represents them as immunune to empiricalrevision.
