In this book Hundert proposes a new, unified view of the mind, one that integrates the insights of philosophers, psychologists, and neuroscientists. Through a detailed discussion of major theories from these and related disciplines, he gradually reveals links between what were previously unconnected approaches to human thought and experience.

About the Author:

Edward M. Hundert is at Harvard Medical School.

Review:


"Ambitious, rich, detailed, and groundbreaking."--Review of Metaphysics


"A bold, challenging, exciting book...that integrates philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience to address the debate between rationalists and empiricists about the content and acquisition of categorical concepts."--Philosophical and Phenomenological Research


"There was a time when philosophers and neuroscientists unaccountably had little to say to one another. In the last five years all that seems to have changed and Edward Hundert's admirable book shows how productive it is to bring these two disciplines together. He surveys a wide field with great skill and knowledge, and his deft familiarity with modern philosophy puts the biology of mind onto a new footing."--Jonathan Miller


"Not since Karl Jaspers has a mind so fine and broadly informed attacked the problems connecting philosophy, psychiatry and neuroscience. Dr. Hundert's work should bring us to a new level of sophistication in dealing with these problems."--Leston Havens, Harvard Medical School


"An inspired and landmark work."--Psychiatric Times
