Product Details

Praise

Paul Churchland continues, quite successfully, his bit to persuade the reader that the classical conception of the workings of the brain should be substituted by a construal of the brain as a dynamic neural network…. If a book’s success is judged both by the scope of its material and by the amount of novelty it brings, then Churchland’s book is an unqualified success.—Metascience

Passionately argued and inspirational…Churchland’s book spans several seldom-bridged topics in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of science, and does so with wit and intelligence from its provocative neurocomputational perspective.

Minds & Machines

Readers already somewhat familiar with…and intrigued by his quest to constrain computational modeling of the brain based on knowledge of its structural, kinematical, and dynamical properties will find much to relish in this rigorous work…Churchland’s prose is direct, concise and clear…[an] impressive and provocative account.
