Back cover copy

'Neurophilosophy is exactly the introduction to the neurosciences that philosophers need, and exactly the introduction to philosophy of mind that neuroscientists need, and only someone who knew both fields very well could write it. This is a unique book. It is excellently written, crammed with information, wise and a pleasure to read.' ---Daniel C. Dennett, Tufts University

Review quote

"Churchland's approach is... refreshing, and it is well carried out .... I am going to use "Neurophilosophy "as the textbook in my graduate course in cognitive neuropsychology. For anyone interested in the 'real' CNS, this volume is by far the best that has come out of cognitive science."- Karl H. Pribram, "Contemporary Psycholoqy"
