Shaun Nichols, University of Arizona
“An enormously useful collection, including representative articles not only on the multitude of positions before and after the ‘cognitive revolution’, but also on topics such as the emotions, animal minds and distinctively perceptual content that have only recently begun to receive the attention they deserve. An ideal text for both introductory and graduate study of the many topics.”
