"...Matthen has many fascinating things to say...It is important to state up front, though, that much of the value of this book lies in the technical details. Matthen is a first-class philosopher with an imposing command of the scientific literature." --Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"Mohan Matthen's Seeing, Doing and Knowing
is an impressive and important contribution to the philosophy of perception, and an empirically informed attempt to understand intentionality and its objects by appealing to biological function.... Matthen's book is extremely stimulating. Any philosopher interested in perception or intentionality will find something useful; every nook and cranny is filled with interesting ideas and insight."--Franklin Scott, Philosophical Psychology
