Mind and Cognition provides the fullest review to date of contemporary developments in our understanding of the relationship of mind and body, thought and expression, machines and brains. It collects both classic articles and pieces never published before in an overview of the complex, sophisticated and sometimes conflicting developments in theories of mind.
In the past thirty years the philosophy of mind has seen a massive shift of doctrine, of method, and of perspective. A hallmark of this shift is the unprecedented attention of philosophers to science: not only to psychology and linguistics, but also to computer science, evolutionary biology and neuroanatomy. This volume makes available to students, teachers and researchers the best and the most influential contributions to this shift.
