The Philosophy of Psychology

The Philosophy of Psychology

This book presents an original and accessible analysis of the relationship between commonsense, or "folk," psychology and contemporary scientific psychology, focusing on the ways in which cognitive science presents a challenge to our commonsense self-image. It is designed as a textbook for upper-level undergraduate and beginning postgraduate students in philosophy and cognitive science, but as a text that not only surveys but advances the debates on the topics discussed, it will also be of interest to researchers working in these areas.


"This superb interdisciplinary introductory survey gives a comprehensive overview of the current state of research in the philosophy of psychology. ...a brilliant contribution to the newly emerging, and somewhat arduous, interdisciplinary project of cognitive science." Philosophical Psychology
