Editorial Reviews

Review

"The research findings in this book are genuinely fascinating, and Alexander does an admirable job of drawing out their implications for contemporary philosophy."
Political Studies Review

"A terrific overview of central debates in this new research field."
Metapsychology Online Reviews

"An enormously valuable volume.  It is the first book-length treatment of experimental philosophy, and it does an excellent job of describing the state of the art and assessing the controversies that experimental philosophy has provoked."
Stephen Stich, Rutgers University

"The first of its kind; the only book that features a sustained argument for the general relevance of experimental philosophy to philosophical debates."
Adam Feltz, Schreiner University

"Experimental philosophy is only a decade old, but has already generated a lot of interesting discoveries, as well as a great deal of attention and criticism.  The time is ripe for a systematic introduction to the field that summarizes these discoveries and addresses the criticisms.  Joshua Alexander delivers the goods.  His book provides interested students with an excellent overview of experimental philosophy, and it challenges philosophers to consider what intuitions are, what role they should play in philosophical theories, and how experimental methods can advance philosophical debates."
Eddy Nahmias, Georgia State University

"Experimental philosophy hosts the most exciting work in contemporary philosophy, and it attracts the most innovative philosophers. Joshua Alexander has written an outstanding introduction to this electrifying new philosophical approach. This book is a pleasure to read, a remarkable overview of the work done by experimental philosophers, and also a substantial contribution to the many philosophical issues raised by experimental philosophy. "
Edouard Machery, University of Pittsburgh

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this work. It makes the subject very accessible. I am not a philosopher, but I was able to follow the material and really understand it. I would highly recommend this work to anyone interested in becoming a better thinker
