The Concept of Mind book. This now-classic work challenges what Ryle calls philosophy's. According to Ryle, the philosophy of mind was put on a shaky foundations by Descartes and his followers. When Descartes divided the world into mind and matter, the first private and the other public, he created several awkward problems: How do we know other people have minds? How do the realms of matter and mind interact?

The Concept of Mind is a 1949 book by philosopher Gilbert Ryle, in which the author argues that "mind" is "a philosophical illusion hailing chiefly from René Descartes and sustained by logical errors and 'category mistakes' which have become habitual.
The concept of mind, on the other hand, is the concept of some indefinite part of a person's body that thinks and acts in a socially acceptable way. Clearly, having and using a body is crucial to the concept of mind, whereas a ghost is by definition an incorporeal entity. A person can lose his mind, be out of his mind, mind his own business and bear things in mind, but he can do none of these things without a body. Ryle, though he uses the word 'person' throughout his critique, never addresses the logical grammar of personhood. Now with respect to the human body being a machine, somebody needs to issue a recall. Though wonderfully complex in its myriad systems and subsystems, the human body-like all organisms-is designed by nature for one purpose and one purpose only, to survive long enough to reproduce itself and then die.

First published in 1949, Gilbert Ryle’s The Concept of Mind is one of the classics of twentieth-century philosophy. Described by Ryle as a ‘sustained piece of analytical hatchet-work’ on Cartesian dualism, The Concept of Mind is a radical and controversial attempt to jettison once and for all what Ryle called ‘the ghost in the machine’: Descartes’ argument that mind and body are two separate entities
The Concept of Mind,' he tells us, 'was a philosophical book written with a meta-philosophical purpose. I wanted to apply, and be seen to be applying to some large-scale philosophical crux the answer to the question that had preoccupied us in the 1920s, and especially in the 1930s, the question namely 'What constitutes a philosophical problem; and what is the way to solve it?'. by the late 1940s it was time, I thought, to exhibit.
