About the Authors
  • The essays in this volume are concerned with our everyday and developed scientific systems of explanation of human behavior in terms of beliefs, attitudes, memories, and the like. The volume provides an introduction to the lively contemporary debate about the status and theoretical viability of such forms of "folk-psychological" explanation, in the light of recent developments in neurobiology and cognitive science. It can be used as a textbook for advanced courses in the philosophy of mind, psychology, and cognitive science.

    • illustratious contributors. Bennett, Balckbur, Shurchlana, Dennett, Fodor and Stich.

    "...a rich supplement to a traditional course in the philosophy of mind or a main text for a course that emphasizes just these issues. Among the book's strengths is that it collects excellent papers on folk psychology by key players in the field." Frederick Adams, Teaching Philosophy
