Format: Hardcover
The format of this book allows its contributors to discuss issues in cognitive science on a very theoretical level, and engage in broad, philosophical speculations, thus drawing out implications beyond those discussed in the original empirical reports of the data. Thus, the issues are (mostly) empirical but are given philosophical treatment, often by researchers who are not philosophers by trade, but who get to discuss their own and others' data. Fun reading!
