Ted Honderich, called Britain's foremost radical philosopher, is internationally distinguished for more than his political philosophy. He has been Grote Professor of the Philosophy of Mind and Logic at University College London, and a visiting professor at Yale and the City University of New York. His theory of the nature of perceptual consciousness — Consciousness as Existence — is a nearly-physicalist alternative to recent orthodoxy in the philosophy of mind. His publications include: A short book on determinism, ‘How Free Are You?, a summary of ‘A Theory of Determinism: The Mind, Neuroscience and Life-Hopes’, is the most translated book on the subject. ‘The Oxford Companion to Philosophy’, a very widely used single-volume reference work on the subject, has lately come out in a new edition. Three volumes of his papers have also appeared.
His most recent book ‘After the Terror’ caused controversy in Germany and elsewhere for its moral defence of Palestinian terrorism against ethnic cleansing. It was banned by one German publisher and then brought out again by another. Ted Honderich is also the author of a philosophical autobiography, ‘Philosopher: A Kind of Life’.
