Leading Philosopher Colin McGinn Signs Three-Book Deal with MIT Press

Charles Carlini recently negotiated a three-book deal with MIT Press for leading philosopher Colin McGinn.

McGinn, a British philosopher, who has held teaching posts and professorships at University College London, the University of Oxford, and Rutgers University, is currently Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of Miami. The author of over two dozen books, including The Making of a Philosopher, he has written for the London Review of Books, The New Republic, the New York Times Book Review, and other publications.

His three forthcoming books are: Philosophy of Language: A Student Text, which undertakes to explain classic writings in philosophy of language; Prehension: A Philosophical Anthropology, which is mainly about the role of the hand in human cognitive and linguistic evolution; and Innate Ideas: Why Descartes Was Right, which is what it says it is about.

Expect to see these books released in 2014.

    Colin McGinn is a very intriguing philosopher and one worth reading. I look forward to all three books, particularly the one on how Descartes was right.
