Editorial Reviews

Review

"This superb interdisciplinary introductory survey gives a comprehensive overview of the current state of research in the philosophy of psychology. ...a brilliant contribution to the newly emerging, and somewhat arduous, interdisciplinary project of cognitive science." Philosophical Psychology

"This is an important addition to any collection in the philosophy of mind." Choice

Book Description

This book presents an original and accessible analysis of the relationship between common-sense, or 'folk', psychology and contemporary scientific psychology, focussing on the ways in which cognitive science presents a challenge to our common-sense self-image. It is designed as a textbook for upper-level undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students in philosophy and cognitive science, but as a text that not only surveys but advances the debates on the topics discussed, it will also be of interest to researchers working in these areas.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By CLARA SHAJRAWI on April 1, 2000
Format: Paperback
The title of the book is, in my opinioin, misleading. It is not a philosophical analysis of psychology as a science or a field of research activity. Rather, it analysis common-sense (folk) psychology in the light of contemporary cognitive science and philosophy. To a reader interesed in this special subject, the book is an excellent overview of (and contribution to) the current state of the art. But if you buy it for its more widely promising title, you may be disappointed.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Amol Sarva on January 15, 2001
Format: Paperback
This volume is an excellent, broad-ranging introduction to leading issues in philosophy of psychology and empirical philosophy of mind. The authors introduce the views and leading authors in such contemporary debates as: modularity and nativism, folk psychology/"mindreading", the language of thought and mental representation, computational cognitivism vs. connectionism, consciousness, evolutionary perspectives (to some extent), the rationality debate, broad vs. narrow content, and others. I beg to differ with the other reviewers narrow view of this book. It is beautifully well-written and accessible. It is an introduction and so leaves much room for further study.
