“The Matter of the Mind is a well organized book which hosts contributions on the main subjects about philosophy of mind and it is definitely worthwhile reading.” (Metapsychology, 14 May 2013)"The editors, and the contributors, are to be congratulated. This is the best collection on the nature of intertheoretic reduction ever published, especially as those issues bear on the unfolding relations between the neurosciences on the one hand, and psychology and the social sciences on the other. Thanks to these papers, all of us (yours truly included) are going to be rethinking our views on reduction." Paul M. Churchland, University of California, San Diego
"Parties on both sides of the reductionism wars will benefit from this exciting collection. The editors and their contributors well represent the cutting edges of the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of science regarding the reducibility (or lack thereof) of minds to brains." Pete Mandik, William Paterson University
“An outstanding vehicle by which to learn about modern reductionism, the relation of neuroscience to psychology, and how they can cooperate rather than compete.” PsycCritiques
