If we are to solve the central problems in the philosophy of science, Paul Churchland argues, we must draw heavily on the resources of the emerging sciences of the mind-brain. A Neurocomputationial Perspective illustrates the fertility of the concepts and data drawn from the study of the brain and of artificial networks that model the brain. These concepts bring unexpected coherence to scattered issues in the philosophy of science, new solutions to old philosophical problems, and new possibilities for the enterprise of science itself.

Review quote

" A bold and unified account encompassing an attitude to belief, desire, subjective experience, learning, grasp of theories and explanatory understanding.... A wide-ranging, daring and eloquently expressed vision.... I commend Paul Churchland's book as an achievement of breadth and poetry in a discipline too often breeding only stultifying narrowness." -- Andy Clark, "Times Higher Education Supplement"
