Such an argument appeals to some principles of the causal closure of the physical, together with certain other premises, to conclude that at least some mental events are identical with physical events. However, it is crucial to the success of any such argument that the physical causal closure. principle to which it appeals is neither too strong nor too weak by certain standards.

Simone Gozzano, Christopher S. The type identity theory, according to which types of mental state are identical to types of physical state, fell out of favour for some years but is now being considered with renewed interest. Many philosophers are critically re-examining the arguments which were marshalled against it, finding in the type identity theory both resources to strengthen a comprehensive, physicalistic metaphysics and a useful tool in understanding the relationship between developments in psychology and new results in neuroscience.

Simone Gozzano and Christopher S. Hill (ed., New Perspectives on Type-Identity: The Mental and ., New Perspectives on Type-Identity: The Mental and the Physical, Cambridge University Press, 2012, 304pp. However, as Gozzano and Hill report, there are now significant worries about theories that take neural state-types merely to realize mental state-types, and one of their aims in this volume is to reevaluate the prospects for the identity thesis by bringing together some of these criticisms, and some new and promising responses to the initial Putnam-Fodor objections.

The type identity theory, according to which types of mental state are identical to types of physical state, fell out of favour for some years but is now being considered with renewed interest. Many philosophers are critically re-examining the arguments which were marshalled against it, finding in the type identity theory both resources to strengthen a comprehensive, physicalistic metaphysics and a useful tool in understanding the relationship between developments in psychology and new results in neuroscience. This volume brings together leading philosophers of mind, whose essays challenge in new ways the standard objections to type identity theory, such as the multiple realizability objection and the modal argument. Other essays show how cognitive science and neuroscience are lending new support to type identity theory and still others provide, extend and improve traditional arguments concerning the theory's explanatory power.
