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)
