By David Chalmers. "This is a bibliography of recent work in the philosophy of mind, philosophy of cognitive science, philosophy of artificial intelligence, and on consciousness in the sciences. It consists of 4934 entries, and is divided into six parts (Consciousness and Qualia; Mental Content; Psychophysical Relations; Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence; Miscellaneous Topics; Consciousness in the Sciences), each of which is further divided by topic and subtopic. Many of the entries are annotated with a brief summary. Most areas of mainstream contemporary philosophy of mind are covered, but very active tangential areas, such as belief semantics and action theory, have been largely ignored. The bibliography consists mostly of papers and books from the last 35 years, with density of coverage increasing with proximity to the present."
