From the Back Cover
Renowned experts in the field contribute to the debates from different perspectives, covering the middle ground as well as the extremes. They address such topics as the degree of modularity of the mind, the amount of innate knowledge, whether human cognition is bounded, the role of perception in action, the place of external elements in mental states, and the importance of rules and representations for explaining systematicity.
The volume as a whole provides a valuable overview of the field in a clear and easily comprehensible form.
