A New Open Textbook on Philosophy

Intro to philosophy book cover.I got a notice of this last week. It looks like a good introduction to philosophy. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the series:

Introduction to Philosophy: Philosophy of Mind surveys both historical and contemporary theories and debates around philosophy of mind to introduce first time readers to the field. The book covers dualism, functionalism, freedom of the will, and consciousness among other subjects, with each chapter written by different experts in that field. This is the first complete textbook from the new Rebus Community Introduction to Philosophy series, which will eventually include 9 introductory Philosophy textbooks in total.”

If you are not familiar with open textbooks (free, online, openly-licensed) there is a good explanation of open textbooks in this book.
