Product Details

Praise

[Schneider’s] book is good proof of the health of contemporary philosophy of mind….To get rid of old stigmas and to raise issues with certain positions is a necessary step. Schneider has provided this first step in her book, showing LOT as a viable response when she focuses it towards computational and cognitive neuroscience for its naturalism to succeed.—Metapsychology

Schneider’s book….is very much in the spirit (and even the style) of what Fodor has said at one point or another. [She] chides philosophers (I suspect she is looking hardest at Fodor and friends) for not following the state of the art in neuroscience and for building theories that fail to reflect findings there. She endorses the ”global workplace” theory of central cognition developed by Baars and, later, Dehaene.

Minds and Machines

——

This book will undoubtedly set the agenda for future work on LOT….The quality of scholarship and writing is high throughout. Unusually for a philosophy monograph, it is also fun to read.

MIND
