Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"Traditionally folk psychology is understood as our ability to predict and explain the behavior of other people by attributing intentional states (beliefs, desires, etc.) to them. Debates about the status of folk psychology have been going on for decades. … Folk Psychology Re-Assessed contributes some interesting angles to the mainstream folk-psychology debate. … the volume will appeal to work in philosophy of mind, neuroscience and experimental psychology … . I think the volume is probably most useful … in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses." (Christina Behme, Metapsychology Online Reviews, Vol. 12 (11), 2008)

More About the Author

Daniel D. Hutto was born and schooled in New York but finished his undergraduate degree as a study abroad student in St Andrews, Scotland where his maternal roots lie. He returned to New York to teach fourth grade in the Bronx for a year in order to fund his MPhil in Logic and Metaphysics after which he carried on his doctoral work in York, England. He now lives in Northchurch, England with his wife and three boys, having joined the University of Hertfordshire in 1993. He served as Head of Philosophy there from 1999 to 2005 and is currently Professor of Philosophical Psychology.

Hutto's research is a sustained attempt to understand human nature in a way which respects natural science but which nevertheless rejects the impersonal metaphysics of contemporary naturalism. His recent projects have focused on consciousness, intentionality and everyday social understanding. He is the author/co-author of many books, edited volumes, chapters and journal articles on these topics.

He is a chief co-investigator for the Australian Research Council 'Embodied Virtues and Expertise' project (2010-2013) and collaborator in the Marie Curie Action 'Towards an Embodied Science of Intersubjectivity' initial training network (2011-2015) and the 'Agency, Normativity and Identity' project (2012-2015) funded by the Spanish Ministry of Innovation and Research. He regularly speaks at conferences and expert meetings for clinical psychiatrists, educationalists, narratologists, neuroscientists and psychologists.

The following assessment, provided in support of his Readership application, is indicative of his achievements to date and his style of approach: "He writes with polish, sophistication, direction and insight. Hutto exhibits a marvellous sense of adventure: he tries to tackle difficult problems and enthusiastically defends positions because they strike him as deep and best, not because they are popular or will readily get him published. Yet he publishes with ease." George Graham, August 1999.
