Editorial Reviews


"...the book addresses many novel questions in imaginative and striking ways." Robert J. Stanton, Philosophy in Review

"...this is a heroic work of scholarship, in the most literal sense. It is also a very enlightening one." Don Ross, Dialogue

"...thoughtful, rich, and extremely ambitious ..." Janet Levin, The Philosophical Review

Book Description

This book offers a comprehensive and broadly rationalist theory of the mind which continually tests itself against experimental results and clinical data. Taking issue with both Empiricists and Externalists, Norton Nelkin argues that perception is cognitive, constructive and proposition-like, and that meaning is determined 'in the head'. Finally, he offers an account of how we acquire some of our most basic concepts, including the concept of the self and that of other minds.
