Editorial Reviews


“Since it appeared almost 20 years ago, Mind and Cognition has been the premiere anthology in contemporary philosophy of mind. This judiciously updated edition secures its position for the foreseeable future.”
Shaun Nichols, University of Arizona

“An enormously useful collection, including representative articles not only on the multitude of positions before and after the ‘cognitive revolution’, but also on topics such as the emotions, animal minds and distinctively perceptual content that have only recently begun to receive the attention they deserve. An ideal text for both introductory and graduate study of the many topics.”
Georges Rey, University of Maryland

From the Back Cover

First published in 1990, Mind and Cognition: An Anthology is now firmly established as a popular teaching apparatus for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in the philosophy of mind. This collection of classic and contemporary articles in philosophy of mind and cognition provides the reader with an overview of the complex, sophisticated, and sometimes conflicting developments in theories of mind that have taken place over the last 50 years, making available to students, teachers, and researchers the very best and most influential contributions to the discipline.

For this new edition, 20 new readings are included and substantial revisions aim to strike a balance between the traditional areas of philosophy of mind and cutting edge areas of philosophy of cognitive science, such as situated cognition, animal minds, and emotion. The emphasis in selection throughout has been on quality and teachability, making this volume a vital resource.

Format: Paperback
Editor William G. Lycan (born 1945) is an American philosopher teaching at the University of North Carolina and the University of Connecticut; he has written other books such as Philosophy of Language: A Contemporary Introduction, Consciousness and Experience, Consciousness, etc. He wrote in the Preface to this 1990 book, "In the past thirty years, the philosophy of mind has seen a massive shift of doctrine, of method, and of perspective. Characteristic of this shift is the unprecedented attention of philosophers of mind to science: not only to psychology and linguistics, but to computer science, evolutionary biology and neuroanatomy as well. As a result, the mind-body problem is now better understood than at any previous point in human history... The essays and excerpts collected here are themselves predominantly philosophical... The volume's most distingshed predecessor is Readings in Philosophy of Psychology, Volume I/Readings in Philosophy of Psychology, Volume II." (Pg. ix) Writings are included by philosophers such as J.B. Watson; Rudolf Carnap; Hilary Putnam; Daniel Dennett; Stephen Stich; Paul Feyerabend; Paul Churchland; Jerry Fodor; Ned Block, as well as Lycan himself.Read more ›
