The core hypothesis of Mindshaping is likely to be true…sophisticated…There is much to admire about this book and it is enjoyable to read…an important book.—Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews—
Zawidzki makes an admirable attempt to synthesize a wide range of phenomena…He also gives an admirably clear overview of the theoretical landscape, and for this reason alone I would recommend Mindshaping to both experts and novices alike.
—Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences
Mindshaping is a tour de force. It rigorously reenvisions humans’ deeply social nature and presents a penetrating challenge to entrenched intuitions about the centrality of folk psychology. Its key innovation is the idea that our individual abilities to make sense of ourselves and other people is a group accomplishment’ grounded in our shared practices for regulating behavior.
