Editorial Reviews


This important book accomplishes a remarkable feat. It lucidly articulates and critically examines the shared assumptions that define the field of cognitive science at a time when many have come to suspect that cognitive science is a field in name only. This is the book on the foundations of cognitive science.

(Owen Flanagan, Professor of Philosophy, Duke University)

Von Eckardt presents many important ideas to consider about the nature of cognitive science as a field, but once you get past the introduction of these ideas, the discussion of them is quite tedious. Chapter 1 is a sufficient treatment for most readers. Additionally, in her focus on "adult, normal, typical cognition," von Eckardt ignores much of the scope of cognitive science in her treatment.
