Summary

First published in 1990, Mind and Cognition: An Anthology is now firmly established as a popular teaching apparatus for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in the philosophy of mind. This collection of classic and contemporary articles in philosophy of mind and cognition provides the reader with an overview of the complex, sophisticated and sometimes conflicting developments in theories of mind that have taken place over the last 40 years, making available to students, teachers and researchers the very best and most influential contributions to the discipline. For this new edition, 20 new readings are included and substantial revisions restore the balance (from the first edition) between the traditional areas of philosophy of mind and cutting edge areas of philosophy of cognitive science, such as situated cognition, animal minds and emotion. The emphasis in selection throughout has been on quality and teachability, making this volume a vital resource.
