Format: Hardcover
Kuczynki's book has many virtues, and a couple of vices.

First, his analyses are swift and breathtaking. The rigor of his writing is immediatly apparent. It commands respect. And his command of the literature is astounding.

There are two problems with his book.

First, it is too long, and it is too loaded with footnotes. One worries that there may be some reducancy with a book this long.

The main problem with his book is that it does not exhibt unity. There is not a sense that Chapters connect up in such a way that we have a unifed manuscript.

Still, I would recommend this book. Selected Chapters from his book could be usefully used for upper-divsion courses in the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of psychology.

More About the Author

During the first phase of my career, I was concerned with purely theoretical matters relating to language, logic, and mind. I then repurposed myself, producing a large-scale work on psychopathology (Empiricism and the Foundations of Psychology, Philadelphia-Amsterdam, 2012). I then dedicated myself to the study of economics. On the basis of a grasp of the rudiments of the discipline, coupled with years of experience in the academy, I came to see that universities have become a massive hindrance to human progress. Instead of disseminating knowledge, universities quarantine it. To this end, universities have been cycling out legitimate scholars and replacing them with bureaucrats who, owing to their lack of merit and consequent lack of options, have no choice but to toe the company line. As a result, professorships are now simply white-collar welfare. (Outside of the hard sciences, university departments are tasked with rationalizing their own uselessness; hence their shoddy work-product.) Fortunately, this situation is about to come to an end, since, thanks in part to my own efforts, education is now in the process of being digitized. Once this project is airborne, it will begin to become clear how much our educational system has damaged us.
