Review quote

a splendid introduction to the subject ... offers an attractive, timely alternative to the more empirically engaged perspective of Lycan's Mind and Cognition. Teachers, students, and non-specialists looking for a comprehensive overview of issues in the general philosophy of mind, de-emphasizing empirical concerns, need look no further. * Philip Robbins, Philosophical Psychology *show more
